This weekend was filled with needful tasks, but uneventful ones.
Which is the best kind of weekend to have after the eventful week we had last week.
One project my husband completed was the building of sweetpea trellis. To my surprise, the sweetpeas I planted about a month and a half ago decided to grow! I really thought with the strange weather we had last month (cold, then warm, then cold again), they wouldn't show their little heads...but, to my surprise they did and needed a place to climb. So, with some wood, nails, chicken wire and paint, the man "with all the tools, but always needs one more", made this cute trellis.
(actually, I don't mind that he wants more tools....he always makes something wonderful!)
Last week, for Mom's Day, I was given a clematis for the back porch...it is starting to bloom! This is the first bloom (and only). But there are lots of buds!
AND speaking of buds, the roses in the yard must have taken a consensus and voted to bloom all at once this weekend...the aroma is wonderful!!
I believe the previous homeowners envisioned an English garden with LOTS of Roses, Lilacs, and Lavender....and we are enjoying their efforts!
