I Like Thursdays: May 16, 2019

You have to keep your sense of humor when every weekend drops about 2.5-3.5 inches of rain.  We are in for sunny weather now and hopefully one dry weekend.  Meanwhile in the garden, the weeds are having a festival but so are the plants.  We are under major construction in the garden.

Gardens change.  This year we are doing a major overhaul because we took a tree down in our backyard and now my neighbor has had to take two of her trees.  Suddenly the back garden is full of sunlight and I'm scrambling to move shade loving plants and replace them with sun lovers.  All this while doing an overhaul of my front yard for an event next summer.

Last year was full of rain and so is this year and plants are spreading everywhere so I'm also dividing and sharing plants.  Last weekend my best friend Linda came to collect a truck full of plants.  This weekend, I'm delivering another load to my other bestie Beth.

It's purple week in the garden:

Yesterday morning was lovely and Scout and I enjoyed walking through the park.  We saw "Big Blue" one of our resident herons and old men enjoying a morn of fishing.

I like bird baths:

This is a new one for me but I like the top piece because it is perfect for butterflies to gather for a drink.

In other news, I recently acquired a new quilt for my collection:

I like the blue bows in this piece.  They were the two favorite colors of my Nana Betty.  She was also a passionate gardener and I think of her every time I am working in the garden.

Have a wonderful week and be sure to look at other positive posts via LeeAnna (our hostess with the mostess)

  1. The quilt is beautiful! I have a few vintage quilts and I treasure them. I love the purple flowers. Such a beautiful color! The park looks like a great place to walk.
