Today I woke up and Ronen was in the living room doing his Yoga/Meditation bit, I was so happy to see him there, I hate waking up with out him, I suddenly realized that I get in a total survival mode when he is away, having to deal with everything on my own ,not easy ah,but his is back, joy.
It was so warm today,suddenly I could feel a summer breeze and realized it will be coming after all. we worked in the garden for a few hours, cleaned the flower beds in the front garden, clipped down some dry perennials from last year making way for new growth and decided where to plant some lovely hollyhock and peony bulbs I bought, at the end of the day everything looked so clean and ready to grow.
Tomorrow we move to the back yard, a lot more work there and this year we are building raised beds and will grow vegetables! i am so exciting about it, I have been dreaming about a vegetable garden forever, my grandparents had 2 beautiful vegetable patches In there Long Island summer house, one was just for herbs and they were giant, till this day when my sister and I smell basil we think of our summers there... the other was a vegetables patch , but all i remember from that were the wonderful potatoes my grandfather grew, we also had fruit trees, mainly plums, peaches, pears and apples, and a beautiful rose patch, oh how I miss that house....and how I miss them...
Anyway, I have it all planned out, I will grow flowers and herbs and vegetables all mixed in. I hope this works it's our first try this year...
Today I took some pictures of my beautiful Tana Lawn (Liberty of London) fabric collection, I still haven't decided what to do with them, so I put them on the shelf and look at them all the time, they are small 1/4 yard pieces, I am sure I will think of something at some point. also working on tiny little pretty zippered
coin purses, and made 10 NEW fabric pins with ribbons to put on Etsy and hopefully also sell in the Bazaar.
