Good morning! I hope that you’re having as nice a weekend as I am! The weather is drop-dead gorgeous – we’re talking shirt sleeves and birds singing and ducks paddling in the pond. And today (Saturday – as I type this!) isn’t even the warm day! To be honest, I’m happy where it is – for me, it could stay at this temperature 24/7/365 and I’d be GTG!
Wayne and I spent some time outside building my new raised Square Foot Gardens! Well, while I’m making a card, and posting it and getting dinner ready, he’s still out there. I can hear the grinder and the welder sparking!
Yea, I know. A man welding – especially in those sexy green welding “sleeves”! – is hot! Many many years ago, we were working together on a steel structure. I thought it was so “cool” how the weld spark looked in the night – and I was…well, head over heels, so…I took lots of pictures. I thought I was being so careful not to look right at the spark. Well, at 2 am I discovered I hadn’t been so careful! Safety tip – pictures of welding at night can get you in trouble. Also, looking away from the spark, but at a metal building where the reflection is will also get you in trouble! I’d burned my eyes enough to need to go to the doc in the morning. Wayne told me to put raw potatoes on them.
Uhm. No – that didn’t really help! 😉
Anywho – here’s what he’s working on today!
That’s the first bed all ready to fill and plant! That means it’s for sure spring!! Can’t wait to see them full of tomatoes and peppers and turnips and kale…. 🙂
Well, on to the real reason you dropped in, yes? Being that it’s feeling all spring-y today, I was feeling in the mood for flowers. And butterflies.
I ended up with flowers – not the Rose Wonder flower I’d pulled out to use, but the pretty Grateful Bunch flowers (my faves!). And I never did add a butterfly….take a look-see:
