Last weekend the weather in Seattle was beautiful - and our yard was calling to us. Actually, I think it was yelling. Weeds needed to be picked, lawns needed to be mowed, beds needed clearing out. It's an understatement to say that hubby and I aren't huge gardening fans, but we have to take advantage of these sunny days and get work done in the yard when we can. When I'm rich and famous I'll hire someone to do it for me. Until then...
Every year I plant Wave Petunias in the garden beds around the trees and up our front walkway. Some years they "wave" and some years they don't. I haven't figured out what I'm doing wrong in the non-waving years. Maybe it's the weather and not me?
My family gave me this fountain a few years ago for my birthday. It's my favorite thing in our yard!
Love this little frog that lives in the rocks around the fountain.
The peonies are in full bloom. We staked them up - they are so top heavy, they were falling into the neighbor's driveway.
Our local nursery was selling blueberries in pots for buy one, get one free. Too good to pass up! The deer will probably eat them before we can.
The "thinker" frog. Obviously, there's a bit of a frog theme around here.
Now that I think about it, time is running out on my rich and famous plan. Better start working on the boys...or get better gardening gloves.
