More weekend fantastic, full, fickle, fragrance fun...

You may have guessed it from the title, but I'll still tell you. We are making progress. Between the late Friday hours and on to the late Sunday hours, I didn't get as much done as I wanted, but the yard does look different. It seems with every project that things are always different on paper, than in reality. For example the arbor seats we planned on were gone when we went to purchase and Fred Meyers wasn't planning on getting any more in. Also, the only Abelia we could find was not scented. Well, like McDonalds says, "When life gives you strawberries, make strawberry lemonade." Or like R W Emerson once said, "For everything you have missed, you have gained something else, and for everything you gain, you lose something else." Or to put it another way, we lost Abelia and gained Sarcocca and lost an arbor but gained (after we get my mother in law to come up and make it) a paver patio for some chairs!
The writer chappies put thing so succinctly.
Here are a few pictures, it doesn't look finished, and that is only because it isn't. However, it will make for lots of fun the next week or so.


Watching Dad work, and feeding the baby

work in progress


  1. Loving your island bed with the pathway winding through it. The little lanterns are a great addition as well. This will look fabulous when the plants mature and fill in, and it will provide a lovely spot to sit out in and enjoy. Your darlings are just so cute feeding their babies!

  2. It is lovely. Very inviting. And I heard that part about your mother in law. So that's why you chose planting yesterday, over laying paving stones.
