We finally have some spring weather and I took advantage in a big way. Rather than showing you more pictures of the dark apartment. I spent most of the day in the sunshine, no coat needed either!!
We took a walk, then ate lunch outdoors before moving on to some work. We collected more rocks for the new design I want to build in the Little Cove, but more on that later.
Spent time exploring the hill at the back of the field
Pulled weeds, added crushed egg shells and planted carrot and radish seeds. The little ones were gifted with their own hand rakes by a relative (not me or they wouldn’t be plastic).
Visited with neighbors preparing their beds in the field (aka the community garden)
The forget-me-nots are doing well.
I think I started the Cosmos a little too early
The marigolds are doing fine.
The green peppers have me a little worried as only one seed has shown some life.
There was a little creativity started indoors, you can’t be outside all day, even if I would love to. My grand-daughter noticed a small hole near the seam in her pants and asked me to repair them. When I opened the box of sewing notions she spotted some left over 4 inch fabric squares. I allowed her to play with them while I worked.
Before I’d completed my task she presented me with this arrangement and asked if this could be a blanket for her babies in the cradle I am restoring for her.
Of course it will look lovely in the finished cradle… she then requested a mattress and pillow to make it complete. :-)
