In case anyone is wondering - busy work, no internet at home, sick, sick, planting flowerbeds, adopting out foster puppies, making curtains..... whew!
I wanted to share some pictures of my still not quite done flowerbed! I have been wanting this for 2 years now, and FINALLY we are getting it in. I have had a couple of bushes still in the nursery pots for over a year!! Basically, I had some things I wanted to transplant to a sunny locale, plus looking at a graying fence all the time is boring.
So the first step, after marking where you want the bed to be is to rent a tiller and chop up the ground and all the grass. This is not as easy as it may sound. It is hard, as the tiller is jerky and vibrate-y, and after a while you loose feeling in your hands. I highly recommend having a husband, brother, dad, male friend, or hiring out the task to a very strong person. I thought I could have done it myself.... HA! Right.
So, this is after step one:
I'm hopeful that I can get this all finished up this weekend - that is if we can stay healthy!! But once I do, I'll share more photos!
I've also been busy making curtains for our bedroom! Easy no-sew kind. I finally found some fabric that I liked, and that was within our budget. You can go check them out at Elizabeth Anne Designs.
Hope everyone is doing well!
