Boating and Planting

This last week has been busy- we have been getting the house ready for summer (window washing/shampooing carpets), starting the landscaping in our backyard, and making sure we have a little time to go boating!

I now have dahlias, poppies, roses, and hydrangeas around the yard.  I am so excited for some colorful blooms- the dahlias are blooming quite well already.

Patio Garden

I love the thought of a garden, I really do, but my backyard is a little on the small side.  Okay, really on the small side (and two big dogs live back there).  So, for now, it is something I dream about for when we move into a bigger yard.  We recently got a mini lettuce garden basket from Chase’s parents.  It is so great!  We can go out and snip a fresh bowl of salad greens for dinner every few days (it grows back pretty quickly).   I am loving how easy a patio garden is- I can see how they are popular for people in the city!
