Odds & Ends & Updates

Sophie is getting so big I can hardly believe it!

I don't think I have ever had a week go by between posts.  Well that must be how summer blogging goes.  I cannot believe July is here!

I know I have alot of updates, I told you a few weeks back that I was painting my bedroom and making my headboard.  I have the bedroom painted, but hubby has yet to do the headboard for me.
I will post before and after photos when that is done.

My grandpa is still hanging in there in hospice, stubborn as a mule.
Only God could turn his heart around, were still praying.

Remember I planted some flowers in May in my wagon?  I do have a photo of them now.

Ok, so the before photo wasn't that great!

The flowers are getting big! and so are my girls.

Also I have a couple before and after photos of my garden.

That was my loofa gourd spoon and my zucchini spoon.
I thought it would be fun to grow loofa gourd!
The zucchini row turned out to be way to small, so I transplanted them to the other garden bed.

This is the whole view of the garden, the two raised beds are in the back corner, someday I will have this whole area into a garden.  I am dreaming of many beds with flowers around the fence line and either pea gravel or bark o mulch in the walkways, with chicken wire to keep critters out and an old garden gate.

I am lucky that when hubby irrigates the coral my garden is watered too.
What I have growing are:
cherry tomatoes
italian parsley
loofa gourd

There is so much more I would love to grow, but that is a good start for me this year.
I've never had a successful garden, so it's looking good.

What do you gals have growing in your garden this year?  Even if it's just a couple pots of herbs on your window sill :)


  1. your garden looks wonderful! i don't have many vegetables other than tomatoes, basil, and garlic. can you guess that i'm married to an italian?

    have a wonderful holiday weekend!

  2. Praying for your grandpa.

    Love the spoon markers. Our poor garden was hammered by hail but we still have been picking tomatoes, beans and peppers. It might look like a hammered weed patch but oh well.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment! I love them and read every one!
