Today was the Spring Art Sale that several UCA students put on every few months. It was held at Meg & Tori's home in Conway. It was a beautiful day to be outside, 83 degrees!
Tori has been busy writing papers and such for school that she wasn't able to make as much as usual. She made postcards from photos she took with her film camera. She also made 4 necklaces.
I crocheted 2 spring shawls.
Meg didn't have time to sew anything! She actually has the weekend off so she is relaxing. I have her dog and probably will keep him until she is finished with this year.
I came home and started working in my garden. I weeded and put down new mulch. I didn't buy enough so back to Lowe's tomorrow. I bought 10 bags....I need about 8 more!
My azaleas are beautiful right now! This one had 6 huge bumble bees on it and although I am afraid of getting stung, I just love listening to them hum.
I planted flowers in my hanging pots. Geraniums, Variegated Vinca Vine, and Verbena which attract butterflies & hummingbirds.
I planted my vegetables. I'm doing container gardening again this year. I planted green beans, red onions, cherry tomatoes, cauliflower & cucumbers.
I turned my compost with the pitchfork (so I got my arm workout in) and added worms to the mixture.
John put the hammock out on Thursday. I look forward to cool evenings laying on the hammock, reading or snuggling with John.
I have so much more to finish in the yard tomorrow. More mulch (another workout lifting those bags and squatting while you pour the contents out) fill hummingbird feeders, finish planting flowers for porch, hang up spring wreath, weed other garden....etc...etc...
I love Spring!
