Are you loving this hot weather? We went right into summer didn't we! I could handle weather like this the whole year.
My gardening projects are getting done, slowly but surely
for the Lacasa Garden Tour coming up on July 9th and 10th.
This project was done Friday. I wanted a fence in this area for awhile now to fill in this huge open area. Planting is hard because of the deer and turkeys. They eat everything or we get raccoons, skunks and woodchucks digging everything up. I added the birdhouse and a vine will climb up the grapevine I added.
Sunflowers will soon be planted next to it.



Thanks Brian and Jeff!!

roof update

Taking longer than I thought but I do love the color!!!
Started the one side today.
  
2 guys still cleaning off shingles on the other side.
What a mess but they are being very careful with my plants and shingles dropping everywhere.
Hope all my plants survive. Not good to cover them with plastic.

I don't have a lot of patience with projects like this but I am trying.
My cats are having a fit!

I hope you are all enjoying your Satuday!!!!

I hope it's worth it!



Taking shingles off to start new metal roof.
Do you think he could get any closer....geez!
So this means no tv and no computer soon so if you get no response don't worry 4-5 days. 
Still have my cell phone.

Later!

Do you like morel mushrooms?

Jennifer (daughter) came over early this morning to collect more rocks for her garden beds so we went back into the woods behind my house.
We hit the mother lode of morel mushrooms!!!!!
She came back later and picked another full grocery bag of them.
I had to get my haircut so missed second trip.
Well, I have to say I really don't care for this type so she took them and gave them away to friends. But they were fun to pick.
 Me carrying sweatshirt full of rocks.
Beautiful morning but very muggy and you can feel it in the air the storms that are heading our way.
 Heading back out to plant...enjoy your afternoon.

Spent Mothers Day outside all day playing and working in the yard.
Started pulling down grapevine climbing in the trees and made this. Turned out really cute! This was before I finished adding more  grapevine, then added a vine in a pot that will grow and cascade down. Mexican Vine, which has bright orange flowers and attracts Monarch butterflies.
I hope you had a great Mothers Day.

Hugs
