i got to take one with my friend carmi

carmi is a wonderful teacher and

super organized

above her demo and some samples

i of course couldn't wait to hang one around my neck

so i twisted some wire to feature my bead

and then had time for another

long weekend in the garden

what a difference a few weeks make

i thought for sure i would be behind due to the

late start to spring and a week of solid rain

this weekend i spent hours, finishing my weeding

laying out 16 bags of cedar mulch

moving and splitting and

planting 10containers of annuals

i even had time to sit and relax

enjoying a bottle of vine and a bbq

a good time to weed!

with three days of rain the garden is looking very green

and it was a good time to tackle the weeds and move some things around

a day in the country is always a stress reliever

especially when you get to visit a two week old baby
