Things are changing :)

June is here, and with it comes a very busy time.
My work schedule has changed, now I begin at 6am. This is the only time of day I could make more time, and now that soccer has begun it is essential that I am home earlier. We spent the day at the field yesterday as well, and it was a great day! Little Country Girls team won their game 3-1. I'm loving her pink jersey!
Country Boy had his prom this week as well.
Doesn't he look handsome in his suit?
I can't believe he's already graduating!
Where does the time GO?

The gardens are planted and filling in. All my hard work in the veggie patch, and still no fence up.
The bunnies were there, and had eaten all the romaine lettuce and broke a few tomato plants off. I have since replanted and after sending the dog out a few times to chase bunnies they seem to be staying away. Yesterday we got some fresh posts from a friend and so they need to be put in and the fence will finally go up.

The back garden extension project is coming along slowly. I just can't seem to get inspired, and I have only found a few plants on my wish list. The compost I used as the base for this garden has a variety of things popping up and I am very careful when weeding there. Poppies, Feverfew, Nicandra, and Datura a few of the surprises growing there. I have even found a pumpkin/squash seed that is growing there! I hope to find a few perennials and will add some annuals for color until then.
The 'Sum and Substance' Hosta that I put in a few years back is finally starting to flourish.
The leaves are getting HUGE (don't mind my muddy hand)

A few more pretties from around the yard

 The gardens are filling in and always changing.
Wonder what I'll find next week?


  1. What a fresh, beautiful time of year -- that last photo of yours is especially lovely! And good luck with installing your new fence. I think we'll be doing the same thing within the year -- our deer-repelling dog can't entirely keep them out of our Kitchen Garden, which is farther away from our house; time for a fence. Thanks so much for sharing the lovely photos of your garden!

    1. Thanks for visiting! I'm hoping to get busy with the posts this week. Hubby laughs ... I have to grow a lot of veggies to save enough to pay for that fence! Oh the things we do to keep the critters out!

  2. This is such a lovely time in the garden when everything is starting to bloom. Do you know the name of the fern (4th last) as my daughter has one in her garden and I'm trying to ID it. Your days sound busy but lots of fun.

    1. Hi Linda! This is a Japanese Painted Fern (Athyrium niponicum). My days have been SO busy so today I banned myself from the gardens to try to relax a little. It was HARD, but it started to rain and that made it a little easier ;)
