What have I been up to?

Hi all! Unfortunately this will be another craft-free post as I've got a lot of things going on at the moment that has taken over all my thoughts and time. All projects that I have been working on (three total) have been put to the side.

Spring Summer is in the air, and we are busy trying to get the gardens prepped and ready for this year. I'm in charge of the herbs this year, and am planting them up at my house like I have the past two years, but am having to tear down my old beds and start some new. Grass is the enemy!!
 Hate to say it, but this was my two beds from last year and the year before. Spent over an hour trying to get it leveled out and the grass cut, and this is what I ended up with..

Doesn't look like much, but it's almost there! I just need to finish leveling it off and set up the beds and I'll be ready to plant!

Which is a good thing because herbs I thought I had lost last year are coming back..

And there was a thunderstorm to the south east of us the other night, and I managed to capture this:

Happy Tatting, all! ^^

Decisions and Weather

After my last post, I decided to give the Pinwheel doily another go, but with some different colors and with the outer row complete as well. I'm going to dye the threads (which I nearly have ready) so they match or compliment the colors that my living room is going to be painted in. I've already got the feature wall painted though! (Go me! ^^)

These past few weeks have been a roller coaster where the weather is concerned.. leading me to buy various plants that I needed to get in the ground. I'm proud to say that I have, and love this little blueberry that I hope one day will give me lots of fruit!

And by little I mean tiny..

And I also got more raspberries in the ground as well..

But didn't realize just how crooked my lines were until I viewed the picture on my laptop. lol I can't make straight lines to save my life! You can't really see where they are in the picture.. My phone can't capture all the details like I want.

Also planted two more blueberry bushes with the ones I planted last year. This brings my total blueberry bush count to six, with five raspberry vines. I love berries! lol

Nothing else left to really say. I've wanted to do some crafting, but haven't really had the time other than to garden. Oh! Other than these!

I love living on a farm! XD

Also.. Anyone going to Bonnaroo? If so, e-mail me!
