Oh my, time is flying by! Son #2 was home on spring break last week. It coincided with son #3 so it worked out well and they got to hang out together.
Also too, I had some free labor. Well, not free. He has been going to college for the past 5 years.
Graduation is coming up, yippee!
But as one finishes up college, one is getting ready to start.
We started this last year but only got a little bit done. This time we got the whole back area cleared out. It was just a mess back there. I have visions of layers of plants back there. So, while both boys were home we spread out all the mulch. Four truck loads full! Now I have a lot of space to add some new bushes and flowers. I can plant a little at a time now which is great.
Some more oak leaf hydrangeas are on my list to get along with another butterfly bush.
I know it looks a little empty now but once I get things planted I’m sure it will fill out nicely.
I am still moving things around. Transplanting a few things too.
I got my vegetables planted in my new raised beds. They are small now but it won’t be long until they take off. I have tomatoes, cucumber, zucchini, squash, eggplant, strawberries and some lettuce. I hope it’s not too late for the lettuce. Oh, and I have carrot seeds to plant.
The sweet peas are already grabbing hold.
We moved the blueberry bushes last year so this is the first year we actually have berries!
I’m so glad we didn’t kill them.
The almost engineer made me a teepee with some bamboo I had laying around.
I planted my green beans around it today. I’ll show you again once they start to cover it.
I also want to thank you for all the good wishes for son #3 and his college interview.
It worked! He got accepted to Florida State and even more exciting….
he got accepted into the Film School! Did I mention that part? That was what the interview was for. They only accept a small amount of freshman. He’s thrilled! He will go to FSU in Tallahassee his first year but then he goes to West Palm Beach to study animation and digital arts. So, that means he won’t be close to home.
I’m trying not to think about that part.
Hope you all have a great week!
