For us in the northeast spring has been very slow to start with rainy and cold weather. The sun decided to grace us with two of the most amazing days before the rain starts back up for the week.
We’re very lucky that we have lily of the valley that likes to pop up all over on the edge of our forest.
So I clipped some and brought it inside, did you know it comes in both pink and white?
Our blueberry bushes are covered in flowers and we couldn’t be more thrilled with all the fruit we’ll yield come July.
Since the weather was so gorgeous on Saturday and we have a lot of projects to get done this spring it was off to our local nursery to get a couple of truckloads of shrubs and flowers.
While Mom and Dad placed the flowers before planting Dylan rested up before the tough work began.
Then it was time to dig! Dylan’s very good about doing the digging and all we have to do is point and stand back and let the boy go at it!
Dylan’s trying to make sure his hole is just right….
Then it’s time for a rest until the next hole needs to be dug. Oh and these raised beds were built by yours truly. Mister man didn’t touch a single stone and it drove him crazy! I told you I could build too!
I’m also putting in a dwarf boxwood hedge with short “Incredibal” hydrangea in front of it. The flower heads should dance on top on the hedge if things work out right. This little garden will lead you up to my secret garden. So that’s been our weekend lots of outside time before the rains begin again tomorrow.
I hope you all have had a wonderful weekend and even better Mother’s Day with your families.
Be well, be kind and lots of love to you all!
