Happy Birthday on this Labor Day to Aunt Tish, Aunt SuZQ and Jakester. Tomorrow- Happy, Happy to Laurie Lou!
A rather low key weekend for me. Since we've gotten chickens and lots of gramerlings, my front yard has looked like a place where feral children and animals play. With no sun, and chickens who eat nine of every ten grass seeds you throw out, it was just a mess. Since my littles enjoy chasing chickens and riding jeeps and go-karts better than grass and flowers, I've let it go.
The recent tree removal, however has allowed some sun in my front yard for perhaps the first time ever. In addition, I've a notion to have a couple of soirees this fall and I'd rather not have my guests be wide eyed and ask if I have feral children and animals about. So I hauled myself to the nursery for the big holiday 75% off sale to put in a little front garden. I should've taken the pictures this morning. When the sun shines through the pine on this little space it is all red gold and glowing and makes me smile. My hope is there are enough plants disliked by deer to keep them eating stuff further from the house. If not, well then I can answer honestly, yes, this is where feral animals have dinner.
This past week Gardner E. and I made weed pockets with my students. I made them at home with the kidlets that showed up for Playdate. Well, we made Wayside Rosie's for her posies.
I hope you found something lovely in this holiday.
