Busy, busy, busy...

The past few days have been a flurry of activity around this house.

We're trying to finish up homeschool for the year, and got behind when we were sick a few weeks ago. I've been working hard on advertising ideas and listing updates for my Etsy shop. The job search has taken up several hours (no news, yet.) I had some sort of volunteer activity every afternoon last week. Our Annual Boy Scout Yard Sale was this past Saturday, which took about 10 hours out of the day. (The Scouts make a killing off of this sale every year... Luckily, we had fantastic weather!)

Whew! It's nice to be able to take a breath this week. But, not for long. My yard is a mess. With the rain and other obligations I haven't been out to weed this year AND it's almost May. If I don't hurry I'll have more weeds than flowers.

As soon as I get it cleaned up a bit I'll post some photos of all of the things currently in bloom. My rose garden is so laden with blooms that several of the branches are falling over! What a wonderful fragrance to greet you in the garden...

I for one, would like to see YARD (before and after) photos. Those are fun.

Ya know what's frustrating for me. I often like the weeds more than I like the flowers. I LOVE dandelions. They are a brilliant pretty yellow and then you can play with them when they get old. Like puppies only in reverse.

focus lady. Don't spread the jelly to thin or the english muffin will still be ... muffin.

So you want to see how BAD it really is?? I'll work on that today.

You know that all flowers of truly weeds? The ones that they sell in stores are just the ones that someone liked better than all the other weeds. I LOVE dandelions, too. They're the most fun, and, now that I'm older, I like to eat the leaves in salads - they're yummy.

Splendid -

I'd better get out and take pictures quickly. The first bloom is almost over on most of them. Amazing what a difference a few USDA zones make!
