Hi Cathy!
So sorry it’s taken me so long to vist; you can blame the garden! We’re finally getting some rain, so I can catch up on my blogging. Anyway, I really enjoyed reading your post and seeing the pictures. I think I’ve mentioned before how much I love the look of your house, and the gardens you and your mom have created give it a lovely setting. And oh yes, I too love the scent of fresh cedar mulch - mmmm. I look forward to seeing the progress of your summer projects!

Hi Nan,

Great to hear from you! We’re getting rain here too today and the temperatures have dropped considerably. The rain is desperately need, but the cold we could live without. Hope it doesn’t have a harmful effect on anything that’s growing.

Cathy, You and your mom (does your dad help?) have done a wonderful job in your yard! It complements your lovely home… and, I noticed, your neighbor’s yard is having to keep up with yours! ;-)

Whew, you and your Mom have been doing lots of work. It is turning out so nice. I will come back to see how things grow this summer.

Shady Gardener,

Mom and I do most of the yard work. Last summer my dad (Jimmy, as I like to call him) did the fence, hung a tire swing and built a big sandbox for Connor. Haven’t found any jobs for him yet this year, so he’s resorted to cutting the grass.

Thank you for visiting! Everything is growing so fast right now it looks different already. My camera is always close at hand, so new pictures are imminent.

You did a marvelous job of cleaning up the overgrown garden and making it your own. I’m sure the original gardener would be pleased to see the care you’ve put into it.

Cute house too!

Hi Pam,

It’s definitely cleaner than it was, now if only it was full and lush like yours. Guess I’ll have to wait it out. (Patience isn’t one of my strong points.)
