I am going to show you some pictures of my gardens when the spring flowers were blooming. Enjoy!

New arbor when we first put it in the corner garden.

I can't remember the name of this one even though mom just told me!

June Garden

As I enjoy an evening at home with my husband and the dogs (we are dog-sitting for my parents this week), I figured I finally had the time to post some pictures of my gardens. We have been doing a lot of work outside the past couple weeks, so there are a lot. I will also have some pictures of our yard, where Jason has leveled out the back and is getting ready to seed. Unfortunately, he can’t seed until next week because we are going to be out of town for four days and we aren’t expecting rain.

By the way – I can’t wait to go camping this weekend. This will be our third annual Fourth of July camping trip in Lake George with my best friend Christine and her husband, Freddy. We will also be joined by Freddy’s sister Laura and her husband Alex. It should be a lot of fun and we are going tubing on Saturday, which will be a first for me.

New potted plant - Zinnias I believe.

New azalea garden we put in recently. Both are red.

Dining Room

I know this is a little late in coming, but a couple weeks ago we bought a new dining room light fixture and Jason installed it. I love it! What pushed us into getting it was that we were working on a puzzle and the light we had made it so hard to finish. The day after the new light went it, the puzzle was finished!

New Bathroom

We finally finished our bathroom and I wanted to post some pictures. It was a long process, but it’s done now and I love using it. Now I can’t wait to do the next one – but we have to finish the rest of the upstairs first.

Here are some pictures of how it used to look like.

This is my first post! I don’t have time to write a lot at the moment, but I just wanted to start this while I could.
