Pics of the Fairy Stump and my backyard

A young friend of mine who has a beautiful way of capturing the world around her took these pics for me.  I love how they turned out.

I know I'm leaving for the summer, so why in the world would I jump off that bridge???

This morning on the way home from dropping off the kids I made an impulsive decision and acted on it. You know that vacant lot right behind the Fujiyama? Well there is a sign that says free dirt and a phone number. I called it, and asked if we could use it as a community garden. I don't know anything about heading something like that up. I don't have money for that. My life is a mess, as in I can't get anything I'm supposed to do done, so what am I thinking????

Who knows.

Helping Hands

Helping my friend move her square foot garden.
Gotta lay down some cardboard to kill the grass.
Fill her in.
Gather plants (not weeds) from old SFG.
We got the new garden all planted out but it started raining so the pictures had to stop. Darn. Ended up with a bunch of onions leftover. So I got to bring them home with me.
Muddy and soaking wet.
Her too.

More cute garden items. How about garden labels. Try this or this.

I like the first one a lot but worry about what is leaching into your soil. The second ones are too cute and will carry the kids personalities forever. They could be sealed with a spray and since they don't touch the soil no worries about chemicals.

So fun.

Garden Organization

Just found a cute idea for keeping yourself and garden organized. Look here.

Thank you to Shelley Inspired!

Carpet the Trees

Half the time while Nate is mowing he can't even find the blueberries because the weeds are taking over. So I cut up some old carpet to wrap around my plants like a christmas tree skirt.

The Elders, or my work slaves.

Apricot tree and little Guomi bush behind it. Did not flower this year.


Little treats the cats leave all over the yard. Poor Cardinal.

Beautiful Plant Shelf

Love this site.

She hacks pictures like this one, and tells laymen (idiots like me) how to build them easily. I can't wait till she get around to this one I submitted. I am like # 200+ or something.

I found this shelf at Oakland Park Nursery this morning. Isn't it beautiful!
