First day home from my little trip to Virginia, I bought wire and built a door for the front of the teeny tiny goat barn. Poppy bought the door hinges and installed them for me. That was the hardest part!
now these two spoiled little goats can be closed in, giving Eli some peace and quiet when he is inside the fence.
Sounds crazy, but Eli is so sweet and humble, the goats bully him...it started off being all fun and games, but now I am afraid the goats will hurt him. That's Eli's goat lot too! :)
Mother's Day turned out very very special...
it's Madison! She has the sweetest smile. Home from college for a couple of weeks, she and her mom and dad came for Mother's Day. Eli loved it! Yay! Finally, a young person! Somebody who can still run and play!
Madison brought me this sweetest coffee mug...
and Andee and Todd brought me these pretty New Guinea Impatiens...
I loved cooking dinner for them. Now that all the grandchildren are about grown, none of them visit much anymore. It was a special day for sure!
That's the little herb garden behind the old barrel and watering can, and hidden there behind rosemary. Things are growing...
of course, the mint in the center is growing best. Thankfully, it is planted in a buried pot...after all these years, I've finally learned. Some of the plants are still very tiny, but there is pineapple sage, broad leaf sage, German thyme, parsley, cilantro, chives, and dill. Don't know what happened to the basil, but I will plant more. Now, if I only knew how to cook using herbs. :(
we have little squash in the garden...
and the bean vines seem to like the wattle fence. The tomato plants are over to the left. Plants are still small but so far things are looking good. It is a teeny tiny garden, you know.
We've been enjoying the stir fry broccoli. Pepper plants are growing.
Oh my, I've got to get busy. It is hot this afternoon. The bunnies still need feeding and Eli needs a walk...before time to start supper.
Today, I've sectioned off where the two fence panels will go for the playhouse...even started digging the post holes. Friday, we plan to TRY putting the panels up. Gosh, those 6' x 8' sections are heavy! HEAVY! I had no idea! Keep your fingers crossed that all goes well. Poppy is not so sure this is a good idea. :[
Thank you, friends!
