A few things….

I have not been very active with my blog lately. A lot has been going on(see previous post). I can’t help but wonder, why I continue blogging.  I do have a bunch to say, but can’t quite finds the words to say it all. As I sit and ponder where I am in life and where I want to be, I am not sure where blogging fits into the scope of things. Please don’t take me wrong, I am not just giving up and quitting(not anytime soon anyway).  Hopefully, once I get some other things in my life straightened out, blogging will fall into place.

In the mean time, here are some pics from our BIG backyard project.

This is how it started. Just a typical back yard. The only features were the greenhouse and small vegetable garden.

The first mini-project. We used tree limbs and old 4×4 posts for the edging. Lillies  inside.

The new rain barrel catches plenty of water for the plants.

The yard was all tilled and posts holes dug.

The fence completed and the bones of the arbor put  into place.

All done! Yay!!! Now for the planting and weeding and fertilizing and…..

Some of the lovely flowers that are in bloom:

Pink Climbing Rose

Red Climbing Rose

Guinness Columbine

Purple Iris(my favorite)

Hope you enjoyed the little tour through our project. There will be more pictures as other plants bloom.




  1. I know what you mean about not having what you need to blog–I went thru a time like that when we were broke, unemployed and discouraged. It was tough trying to be upbeat in my blog–but, “This to shall pass.” It will be OK and hopefully, your garden will cheer you up!!!! It is gorgeous! I am so jealous! (I live in an apartment and really want a garden!!!)

    • Thanks for the words of encouragement. I am usually a “cheerleader” for loving life. Just having difficulty with it lately.
