I promised I would not make a big deal about graduation here so I will simply say I am so proud of our eldest! He is a fine young man and has such grand aspirations in life. In a few short months he will be heading off on his own out to the west coast for USMC bootcamp where he will start a whole new life. Until then he is helping out at home, seeking employment which is pretty hard to come by in our area especially since there is a 10 day missions trip to the Bronx he is involved in, and enjoying a bit of leisure as well.
Out front we have this going on. Yes I know it looks like we have lovely things growing between the pavers but in all honesty it is just weeds. Soon wooly moss, elfin moss and sedum will grace this area as a means of softening it up a bit.
I've also been picking large bouquets of lavender to grace our home! I love it!
The thyme and lilies seem to be trying to take over the area... I see a few haircuts in the works. In fact that is what I am off to do in a few minutes since it is still so nice out.
The front garden is need of a little work... so these will make great before shots because it really brought home the fact that we are desperately in need of color.... and need to find a new home for the hose.
Well I am off to tame the wilds! And see what we can dig up around these here parts in an effort to add a bit of beauty and whimsy to our outdoor spaces.
Have a great day!
