You may be wondering (or not, but I'll tell you anyway) why my beans were so busy last weekend they couldn't help me blog.
Well, here is what they've spent the last 3 weekends (and counting) doing:
Digging up lotsa grass and dirt to level out this area to make a patio and a shed under the deck. No worries, mommy made sure one of my feeding poles will remain right under the window where it belongs (the other is still there, just out by the garden) even tho daddy wanted to move both of them.
Mommy planted Black Eyed Susans to go with the coneflowers for the finches.
AND her finally completed butterfly garden. We can't wait till it blooms. She planted 2 milkweed plants for the Monarchs to lay their larvae on. It has a big dark rock (you can't really see it) for them to sunbathe on and a sindfilled butterfly bath.
Here is a view of her veggie garden (the one big gold bush is already moved and in between the two are dill plants also for butterflies. It is covered with black fabric stuff to keep weeds down. Mommy does NOT use chemicals in the yard.
Here she is behind the HUGE terrigon plant that grew back from last year. I wish my nip would grow that tall.
Daddy's hands got all torn up from all the tilling and digging.
I'm glad my bird feeders didn't move from my favorite window so I can watch mommy swear when she sees this.
She feeds the squirrels lots of seed and peanuts already. These poles are baffled so they are for birds only. We just can't figure out how they are getting up there!
Here is what happened to the runner after I was done playing with my yellow fuzzy toy from PB&J for Swap N Tails. Check there this afternoon for complete details.
It is storming here today so I think I'll just take a nap until the boomies go away.
