Home & Garden

So Biker Dude & I were out and about Saturday morning and happened to notice that there was a home and garden show at the local expo center. We stopped in.

Oh my. Beautiful garden landscapes and trees and flowers and bushes. So we bought. A BUNCH of stuff. Mainly bushes for the spot next to the garage wall, which has laid barren for over a year and desperately needed new landscaping.

I also found a couple quirky things that caught my eye, like this windchime:


It makes a beautiful sound, and, unlike the last windchime that hung there, is not glass. Really. I live in Oklahoma, where like the song, the wind really does sweep down the plain–often at 50 mph. Glass wind chimes? Never again.

And then I saw this wrought iron hummingbird. Omg. I have mad love for it and also bought one for my mother-in-law for Mother’s Day:

Then came the landscaping. I’m so happy with how it turned out. I wish I’d taken pics of how it looked before. It was dirt. And weeds. And nothing else. We dug up all the weeds, tilled the ground, laid down a sheet to keep out the weeds, then planted the bushes and put down the rock. Ugh,my back and legs are killing me! But it’s so pretty and so much better than dirt, huh?

Still a lot of work to be done in the yard. But hey, it’s a start! And I do love playing in the dirt. :giggle:
