Fabric Boxes and the Garden (Done for the Winter)

I wanted something to do just for the fun of it.  Something easy; something that doesn’t require a lot of concentration.

So I made these.

Fabric Boxes

The cute little boxes will make nice gifts, once I decide what to fill them with.

I was going to share some wonderful photos of the last of my blooming garden flowers…purple asters.

But there was some shenanigans going on, and I never got to take those photos.

One day I have blossoms, and the next day, they are somebody’s salad.

Sheesh!

Nevertheless, I can share a photo of some fabulous fall color.

And a close-up…just because it is so pretty.

A Stroll in the Garden

Bucks in the Garden

Sunday was a very pleasant and relaxing winter day for Hubby and me.

Hubby enjoyed working on his model projects, and I spent the day working on sewing projects.

And we both enjoyed the view right outside our window.

Look carefully; there are two bucks snacking on oak leaves.

Spring/Summer Blogging Break

The snow is gone, and the afternoons have been warm, and I’ve been able to spend time outdoors enjoying sunshine and new growth.

I’m weeding this slope, which is bigger than it looks here.  Lilies will soon pop up in front of these posts.  As for the rest of the slope…I’ve got creeping jenny, St. John’s Wort, and creeping phlox ground covers started.  May the best one for the area win!  The goal is for the ground cover to fill it in, so I won’t have to weed it every year!

There is alot more yardwork to do, and alot more spring and summer to enjoy, so my blogging is likely to become very sporadic.

Pulling Weeds

Hubby set up the water fountain.  I’ll eventually get some container plantings around it.  Last year, a little toad lived in one of the containers and got fat from all the insects that came for water.  Smart little guy (or gal)!

The forsythia is beginning to shine!

There are spring shenanigans distracting me from the garden!

The doe was harrassing tom turkey, but you can see who turned tail!

Doe and Tom

They teamed up when they spotted me with my camera.

It’s spring…the time of courtship.

Tom Turkey Showing Off

It is noisy around here, but it doesn’t last long.

Tom Turkey

What amazes me, is that there are always little turkeys later on.  The hens usually ignore the toms and all their strutting.

How can they ignore such a handsome guy?
