When warm weather arrives.......

When warm weather arrives.......
Gardening fever hits me!

As you can see, I have lots of herbs, veggies, fruits, and flowers started in pots.

A recent trip to Lowes got me these two redish/orange planters and some lovely pansies and violas to put in them. 

I also have a new shepherd's hook and now bird and humming bird feeders.

My flower gardens have started to bloom out. These grape hyacinths I rescued from the lot beside us.

A planter full of green onion seeds....

Peonies come out of the ground

Blackberry vines awaken...

Potatoes get planted in their containers.
Yukon gold and red pontiac here.

Spud buds form.

Birds enjoy the new sunflower birdbath.

The other shepherds hook in my back yard and my spiffy new hummingbird feeder.

The new greenhouse for improved seed seedling growth.

My garden beds become alive again.

And they get new decorations like these solar lights.

When warm weather arrives..........
We make things.

Here we are making our own pizza's and calzones.

Eddie's pizza piled high with pepperoni and cheese.

Sj's  pizza has a pepperoni face and sausage freckles.

Faith's pizza has pepperoni eyes, tomato nose, and a pepperoni mouth with tomato teeth.

Hope's "COWzone" is a cow's face.

When warm weather arrives......
Injuries happen.

Faith was playing basketball at a neighbor's house and the ball bent her thumb back.
It was broken.

After a trip to the E.R. and a 2.5 hour stay...she got a splint she has to wear for 2 weeks.

When warm weather arrives...
Babies are born.

Here is the finished round baby girl blanket I made for my cousin. I love how it turned out!

All folded up in a triangle. You can see the edging in this picture.

My current WIP also for my cousin is this diagonal granny stripe blanket. It is going to be a snuggly for her 3 year old little boy. I have two more color repeats and I can start decreasing...Yay!

Hope you have enjoyed my venture through some of the many things my family and I have been up to since we spoke last. I hope to have lots more to show you very soon. 
Thank you all for being loyal followers!
Be blessed.


  1. I am the same way, when it gets warm I get obsessed about my garden. We live in upstate NY and I can't plant outdoors yet but I have all my seedlings going. Sorry about your daughters thumb, that had to hurt. Great pics! ♥

  2. Hi Erin! Wow, your yard is nice and tidy and full of promise! Hubby got some boards to make raised beds, but the weather hasn't cooperated yet. Sorry about Faith's thumb.. OUCH! Love your crochet blankies.. you're doing good! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  3. Oh no, your poor daughter, that looks painful.
    Beautiful baby blanket.
    Happy food eating times ahead, pizzas look delicious.
