Creeping Charlie!

Creeping Charlie is taking over my yard (and the gnomes!). Time for some major weeding!!

Can you identify this bush? I have no clue what it is, but love it! It is located next to my driveway and I almost cut it down thinking it was a shoot from a neighboring tree.

In the yard at LaNa!

With my house I inherited over 20 peony plants - lucky me! Unfortunately, our heavy rains this spring meant they weren't around too long. However, I did manage to get one bouquet for my livingroom. They smelled incredible!

The newest addition to LaNa!

If the name is good enough for Gwenyth's kid, then it is good for my new LAWN MOWER!

Meet Apple!!!

Who knew I would be so excited about a piece of yard equipment??!! She is green in many ways besides her beautiful color (note: she matches my front door!) No gas, no fumes...just an extension cord (or two seeing as I mowed over one during my first at bat)!!! Thanks to Mike at Stadium Hardware for hooking me up!!

In the garden at LaNa!

My lettuce is growing like a weed and VERY yummy!

Pictures of my container spices and tomatoes in the galvanized tub gardens to follow soon!

In the yard at LaNa!

Can you identify this bush?

Note: my compost bin is almost invisible underneath!

I have no idea what it is called, but it is beautiful!

Father's Day!

I spent a great Father's Day with my awesome Dad! We had a yummy bbq over great conversation and many laughs. Fun times!!

Got Rhubarb?!

Holy cow! Look at this rhubarb plant!!! My Grandma Gray would have been so pleased!!

While I can never make a rhubarb pie like she could, I think I'll try my hand at some rhubarb chutney. I've got to do something with all the rhubarb in my freezer!!!

Container Gardens!

I saw this photo in my recent edition of Real Simple and plan to do the same with some tomato seedlings from my local farmer's market. At a recent estate sale, I scored some old galvanized tubs just in time for this project!

Stay tuned for some photos of the completed project!!
