Out and About

With the return of warm weather (finally) we are trying to get a bit of gardening done.  

New raspberry and strawberry plants arrived

I love how the canes were packaged in neat bundles with real moss to keep them moist.

The skating pond is now a frog pond.....which is nice...for the frogs.... but it's directly under our bedroom window and the spring peepers keep me awake most of the night.  I love the sound they make in the evening when I'm outside but at 4 gets a bit old.

The garlic we planted last fall is doing well, it's almost time to make garlic scape pesto.

Scott is away this weekend with his brother and friends to a "man camp" in the woods.  I'm planning to entertain myself with a bit of reading, knitting, gardening and a trip to the farmer's market with Isaac.  What are your weekend plans?


  1. There was a frog outside one of my bedroom windows last night and at 2:00 a.m. I actually considered bodily harm!
    I am having a tea party tomorrow which I am really looking forward to.
    Enjoy your weekend.

  2. I love your photos. It's already getting hot and muggy down here - highs have been near 90! And we also have frogs which keep us awake with their "symphony" each evening!
