I started out okay, but well, other things started to happen.
Once we began renovating the bathrooms , one thing lead to another and other things needed doing.
Suddenly I was spending more time shopping (shudder!) than I was gardening.
I hardly did anything I had planned.
Plants I had started from seed died waiting to be planted in the spring, due to my lack of a greenhouse and too many nights taking care of other people’s plants ( but I love you anyways Tam!)
I had planned to plant sunflowers as I love how they look in fall.
That didn’t happen, but, thankfully the birds did it for me!
After spending all of last week cleaning and organizing the house I finally, by Saturday evening was able to say I was done.
I had reached the bottom of the laundry pile( a twice yearly event), scrubbed and vacuumed and rearranged the living room.
The time had come to use the lovely sunflowers in the house.
Here’s where they went. . .
The garden room.
By my favorite chair.
In my pretty new bathroom.
In the kitchen.
And then, for something a little different,
Fresh flowers from the garden, a clean house and, oh yes, applesauce cake made with our homemade applesauce and butter icing. (yes I use real butter!)
Life is very good.
