Sunrise, Sunset

Sunrise, Sunset

Wow, I didn’t realize it has been quite so long since my last post.  We have been in the new house for almost a month and so far so good!  We are just waiting on the new sofa to come and then I have to persuade Matt to buy a dining room table.  My craft desk is on the way and then I can start working on that room (which I’m really excited about)! Yesterday Matt was sitting on the…

I’m running out of room

I’m running out of room

For plants in the yard. Ya’ll this is craziness! I have NEVER been a gardener but lately I can’t seem to get enough plants. Saturday I ran to Lowe’s and picked up some cute Coral Reef Sedum ground cover to replace the old, yucky, spotty monkey grass. I had no idea what I wanted when I went to Lowe’s but this cute stuff caught my eye and for $10.00 a flat I couldn’t pass it up. Yesterday I started working…

Yard work Update

Yard work Update

I decided I was having a competition with our neighbors across the street for the best yard.  They ripped out their bushes a few weeks before we did and planted one measly little plant.  It died before they got the other 2 in.  They’ve since added a couple of mums and bush but still, I feel like they had no direction so  clearly we just won.  In this post I showed you the before and after.  This weekend Matt and I ran…

Yard work

Yard work

For the past 2 years, or however long I’ve lived with Matt, I have HATED our bushes out front.  Now I’m not really a gardener but in the past few months I’ve done pretty well keeping my plants alive, minus the rose bush.  I don’t wanna talk about it.  😉  I had already decided as soon as fall came I was ripping those ugly damn bushes out and putting something else in. Well yesterday was that day.  Matt and I…

A rose by any other name

A rose by any other name

Would still be a rose. 😉  And currently there is a new knock-out rose bush sitting on my deck.  I decided to buy one over the weekend.  I talked to my mom and she assured me they are very hardy and love lots of sun.  Since our deck gets full sun most of the day I thought it would be a great for it to live.  Plus this way I will see it and I might actually remember to water…

The “Southern” is coming out!

The “Southern” is coming out!

What I mean by this is the “southern” love of gardening is starting to come out. My whole life I have been all bah humbug about gardening. Honestly I couldn’t really think of anything I really cared less for but now, now I have the bug. It started with a few random plants in the house. Since I’ve managed to actually keep a couple alive for a few years I’m starting to get more adventurous. You may remember the herbal…

Let there be light!

Let there be light!

Matt and I were very busy over the weekend.  On Saturday we drove to VA Beach for the day to see my friend Brandi and her new baby, Brooklyn.  Brooklyn was an absolute doll.  There is nothing sweeter then a baby sleeping in your arms making little baby coos. Saturday the in-laws drove up to get Matt’s aunt and grandmother.  They flew in from London for vacation.  After lunch Matt and I headed to Target to grab a few things….
