Flowers are blooming later this year than usual.   Today is the last day of May and spring is just in full bloom.  Transition is a large part of what is going on in our family right now.  My oldest child is graduating from high school in a few weeks and my mother in law is experiencing the last hours of her life.  Her sons and family have been by her side for days as she is peaceful and comfortable.   She has lived a long, good life with many many people who love her.

And yet more yard work

This past weekend I tackled my veggie garden.  I waited too long and thanks to spring rain and sunshine I had quite a challenge.   But despite the weeds trying to take over I found my strawberry patch!  Tomatoes and zucchini are planted and waiting for gourds and morning glory to emerge.    I love playing in the dirt!

Progress week 5

I now have 13 hexies per side and feel like it's finally getting larger.  A set back for some repairs to be done, thanks to Irma,  and I'm off and running again.  Lovin' the hexies!

More spring prep

More work to prep flower beds. I haven't even touched the veggie garden yet.  This bed is just outside the front door.  I was anxious to get it cleaned up.  Both to get ready for flowers and because there will be a group of kids showing up very soon for prom pictures

And you can see I had both supervision from my handsome hounds and help from insufferable Irma.   She was helping with digging,  but not in a helpful location.

Irma strikes again

This puppy is just plain exhausting.   She has attached herself to me and anytime she can grab something of mine she goes to town with it.  She has destroyed three pair of glasses and now she has taken a liking to my hexie project.  This is not good at all!!
