Oh No...I Have Become My Mother!

If you don't understand my blog title please visit my mother's blog @ for clarity. I have taken pictures of my garden and some of the fruits of our labor so that my mom can see what our garden looks like. I enlisted Charles to build me some garden boxes that had some architectural detail. I found a couple pictures online and showed them to him. He thought okay no problem and we were off to Lowes to purchase some wood. What he didn't realize is that it would take him two weekends to build my boxes. I guess I should say "Thank You!" everyday, but wouldn't you agree that they turned out great? Then I gently informed him that I would actually like two more 4x4 beds for next year. Oh well just another project to add to the list. Hope you enjoy!

Yellow Squash (okay so 7 squash plants may be overdoing it just a little)

Look at all of the baby yellow squash.

Zucchini (they were planted later than the squash, but they should catch up soon)

It's About Time!

Okay so I know it is about time I post something, but you know how things go. Well I guess I will start with the puppies; or as we know them as Larry, Moe & Curly or "The Chicklets". Daisy had them on our 2nd anniversary. What a gift! Charles is going to have a hard time trying to top this. They are 4 weeks old today. Here are a few pictures of them so you can see how much they have grown. The first two where taken when they were born.

The next one's are of them now.
