It has been way too long since I have last posted. School has just 3 short weeks left and I am feeling it:) This weekend was a great time of relaxing that we both really needed. Dave has mostly finished painting our upstairs trim. It was an eggshell color that was turning a little pink so we refreshed it with some white paint. It’s a huge job something Dave did awesome at:) While he did that on Saturday I stuck to the outside. I weeded, cleaned up debris and transplanted some of my tulips. I also got my one raised bed ready to be planted in. I am not the best with plants but I am determined to do better this year. Thanks to a friend here in Portland and some wise words from the owners of our CSA I decided to stick with seedlings that were already grown instead of the actual seeds. I did though use seeds for my herb garden and I planted some wildflower seeds. Here are my results:
The herb garden complete with sweet basil, chives, and parsley and my wildflowers
My wild rhubarb
The backyard porch
We still have more we want to do and plant but I am loving what we have so far. Three day week this week for Dave and I. I am running my marathon on Saturday at 7am so we are leaving on Friday to drive to the coast. Hope everyone had a great memorial day and truly remembered those who have served for our country.
