Perrenial Bed

We built a deck and I decided to fill in the corner of it so didn't have to mow in there. So went to a friends and got some Perennials. It needs more mulch though and will have to get some as the weeds are starting to grow well in there. I thought the froggie was adorable and the orange bucket adds color... I did add another bucket but have to get another plant for in there yet.


Been a while since I have been on... Heather graduated from High school so we were busy getting thing in order and working around the yard for the party.
This is from the set in the Summer Mini catalog that will end August 31st. Love it!
Stamps: Go, Graduate
Paper: Real Red, Whisper White, Kraft, Basic Black
Ink: Real Red, Basic Black
Accessories: Miscellaneous markers,

Baby Chick time....

I went to Rothschild yesterday and got our babies.... Not as many as last year but at the price they were going for at the Small Animal auction I should have started more and made some money!!! These are Buff Orphingtons, Rhode Island Reds and Light Brahamas
These are the ones I got at the Small Animal auction. These are Aracaunas (lay green and blue eggs) and Barred Plymouth Rock chickens..

I love it, just that it's time consuming and expensive. There are Hostas between the lights they just aren't up yet but starting to peek out. Had to make a run to get more stuff as I have to do the other side of the garage too. Still need 4 more bags or rocks!!!

There was way to much weedy mess under the plastic that was there. Couldn't use mulch as the chickens scratch that away. Once I am done with the other side of the garage it is time to start working under the deck and around it...
