Notes From the Farm

In the summer my greenhouse looks like this.
Small, cozy. The hub of my gardening adventures.

Flowers grow all around it in untidy masses.
They completely ramble out of the flower beds.
I encourage their misbehavior.

Piglet also sanctions lots of rambling and overgrowth.

But now, with Old Man Winter lurking nearby,
we have to wrap some of the rose bushes.
Check all the grapevines.

Prepare them for this.

So that's what I'll be doing today.
Tying up the few loose ends around here.
Maybe I'll get Piglet to help me.

Then again, maybe not.

What about you? What have you got planned for this chilly Thursday?

I have greenhouse envy, lol.

And WTG on the wordcount!

I'm getting my new end table tomorrow so I have to clean up around the area where I want to put it.

In between that I have to go to work, do some quilting and hopefully get to relax.

We're having unseasonably spring-like weather here.

Excellent progress on your word count.

What a sweet greenhouse! And that cat is too cute.

Today I'll be running the kids around after school. Errands while they're at school. Yeah, it never ends!

I envy you the greenhouse and the greenhouse helper. I have a dog grooming salon, so today, I'm off to make some fur kids pretty.

Always love it when you post pictures of your world. So pretty.

Today I'm going to take it easy. I've got a rotten head cold.

Great greenhouse. I love grapes. We used to have grapes at our old place but they never did well where we live now.

Btw, check out my blog - I gave you an award!

I think I have greenhouse envy! Is that even a thing?

Piglet looks like, um, well, like she won't be much help.

I miss summer already.

LOL Nope, Piglet definitely does not look inclined to help. *G* Spoiled kitty, LOL.

How are you Sarita??? I have missed my blog buddies, but hopefully my schedule has eased up enough that I can get back down to business.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I promise to pop by for regular visits again.
