Happy Tuesday or Monday or Tuesday?
Anyway it feels like Monday but thank goodness it is Tuesday. :) I hope that you had a wonderful weekend and enjoyed your three day weekend.
We had a great weekend!
We went to a town near Chicago to go to a graduation party for one of our friends daughters, got to visit for a while with friends we haven't seen in about a year and then drove home Sunday in this..
It RAINED like you wouldn't believe!!!
There were tornado warnings to the south of where we were and what was a four hour trip turned into about 6.
I knew we should have stopped at IKEA to wait it out! :)
Monday was GORGEOUS here!!
It was finally sunny and about 90 so we decided to plant, well all except hubby who took a shift on patrol to make sure all the vacationers were behaving.
So the kids and I cleaned up the yard and planted a few things in the garden as well as my window boxes.
My hydrangea will bloom soon.
This is how the back garden looks right now with everything up.
View of it from the deck.
Here is our deck and a view of the my garden.
I planted some tall grasses that will hopefully hide underneath the deck.
Window boxes are filled with white impatiens, potato vine, some spikey things and one other filler plant that I can't remember what it is called. :)
I also put out my chairs to hid some of the ucky that is going on in the front that I showed you here.
(thank you Anne and Laurie for your amazing suggestion,s by the way, for my front. One day I will make those happen)
Here is my deck, one my favorite place to hang out during the summer months and enjoy the gardens, the wildlife and listening to the boats on Lake Michigan on a calm Sunday morning.
The chaise is from Pottery Barn that I purchased a couple years ago. The table and chairs from Walmart and the plastic chairs and umbrella from Lowe's last year.
And that would be Baja wondering she can't come out and play. Luckily her head fits through the slats. :)
With all the rain that we have had everything is very green and looks pretty good right now.
The yard and garden are coming along, still need LOTS of work, but for now this will do. It is peaceful, it is green and it was made by us. :)
I hope that you have a wonderful week!
Until next time!
