Sowing the Seeds of Love...

blogged by me domestic goddess On 5/11/2009 03:08:00 PM
The weekend was spent in the garden, digging weeds, turning soil and raking. Lilly and I sowed our vegetable seeds and flower seeds to pop in her little greenhouse, and we sowed some seeds direct onto our new raised beds that Peter made for us.

After 2 weekends solid in the garden, lots of digging and pruning, we are getting somewhere, and the garden is looking pretty respectable again!. Even Peter has enjoyed himself, which is a miracle as he hates anything to do with work in the garden. He just likes to sit back and enjoy. unfortunately, last year I had very little time out in the garden due to our wonderful British Summer, NOT! and it was showing. Now we need to just keep on top of all our hard work!

We finally bought a composting bin, and the girls have had great fun trotting to the end of the garden to pop vegetable peelings and half eaten apples into it! Its amazing what amused children. Ask them to put their rubbish in the bin, and you are answered back with a moan and a groan, but send them to the bottom of the garden and bobs your uncle, job done!
Next weekend another trip to the Garden Centre for some pretties to add to the borders. I also need to do the hanging baskets and window boxes.
I also managed to get my Pencil Lines layout done this week. My photo of the layout is absolute pants! Which is why I am showing only closeups, you will have to go over to Pencil Lines to see all the DT's wonderful work and my terribly photographed layout!

I used Sassafrass Lass papers and stickers.
Here are 2 layouts I did at Scrapajacks Retreat Friday;

Love the new collections from My little Shoebox and Bella Blvd.

The sun is still shining here, and will be for another day at least, then we are forecast heavy rain, boo........
Enjoy the good weather whilst it lasts! I am off to tidy my studio and start work on a big project I am working on this year!

Hugs and thanks for stopping by.
