Our garden

Beautiful hostas, lilies and far back there is our young lilac bush. It's under our bedroom window, so I'm hoping every spring, I'll wake to the fresh scent of lilac blossoms!
Look how our garden is growing! Last night and the night before, we had salads for dinner, lettuce fresh from our garden. I'm anxiously waiting for the tomatoes (we have 24 plants)!
This is the book about dogs that we gave to our friend for her birthday. Everyone loved get to lift flaps, feel the dog's soft fir, etc.

We had lots of fun painting this box together.

Try this fun game ( you have to line up 3 of the same fruit):
My girls like Strawberry Shortcake (so do I) and seriously, I'm a bit addicted to this game. I had to play easy, then medium, then hard and a couple of times before I beat the clock!

Your blog brings a smile to my face everytime! I think it's your creativity and music ~ Thank you :)

Your garden is lovely!

And, growing up we'd often have strawberry shortcake for dinner when the berries were fresh.

My Dh doesn't like dessert for dinner, so I don't do it anymore, sigh.

Mmmm...nothin' better than going out to pick dinner! I can't WAIT 'til our 'matos are ripe.

And is that a Matthew Van Fleet book? LOVE him!

What a lovely little garden. I'm jealous. I didn't plant much this yr. Just sunflowers & tomatoes. Maybe a bigger one next year. I have missed gardenig this yr.

For your daily dose of vintage goodness & a bit of silliness, stop by Confessions of an Apron Queen

Thanks for stopping by my blog, just out of curiosity, how did you find it? I love seeing new blogs, and yours is great! I love all the scrapbooking stuff (my addiction too) and the cards are so cute! Your girls are gorgous also. Thanks for stopping by again, and I hope you will check it out often, I as will yours.

Your hostas are gorgeous and your garden is doing so well! You are going to have so many delicious tomatoes...yum! Hope you are having a great day!

Geri said...

Hey Marfa! I love that garden of yours! I can't wait to actually have a house again so I can grow a big one. A side from my Aerogarden, I have a little garden out back but we only have 8 tomato plants! Enjoy yours!!

What a lovely garden! I love tomatoes - hope you get bunches and bunches.

Loreluca said...

Can I be green with envy about your garden? mine is nowhere even close to that! i think we must have planted a little too late in the summer. We didn't really get decent days until probably mid June...
I LOVE that box house. We HAVE to make one ourselves! And I HAVE to show the game to Coco. Big time fan!!!

Matushka said...

What a lovely garden. We have a garden too and love it. We are currently on vacation in the N.W., so we'll see what our garden looks like when we return home.
