Happy Wednesday friends! I am so glad I remembered and got my post in earlier today! Will miracles never cease! If you are wondering what I am on about well...today is Wednesday and it is WOYWW! What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday! Julia started the group 8 years ago this month and we all get together every Wednesday to blog hop and renew friendships from around the world...I started following WOYWW in 2010 and have interacted with people all over Europe, Africa, the Middle East, USA almost everywhere! Click on the link and go check it out. Julia has put up directions on how you can play too! Normally not such a big introduction but hey I thought 8 years deserved it!
Okay on to my desk for today...not much of a change...maybe a little more picked up...had to cleanup and put away a bit cause it was becoming overwhelming! Thought today I would show a little wider view...I have my desk half way cleaned off
I did manage to make one card this week for an inspiration challenge...they gave an image of a wedding cake and this is what it inspired!
I was going to add some Washi tape that said all you have to add is ice cream but it didn't look right to me so this is what it ended up looking like! Do you like Washi tapes? I love them. See that big box that says dance? it is full of the stuff.
Okay that is it for the WOYWW post. I am making some ATC when I get home from the doctors to today if you are interested in swapping contact me.
Now on to the garden for the people who want me to post pics! The first picture is of Chuck's native/wild plant garden by the front stoop that he has been working on for years...It looks like a wild patch and blooms constantly all year!
These are some of my favorites. I love these cosmos he planted several years ago. These have mutated from just the purple color to a combo of purple, purple and white, and just white. They are awesome!
Shasta daisies, Gallardia, and yellow primrose
Spider wort...blue on the left and purple on the right
I like flower pot and more structured....my flower pots.
In the backyard there are a lot of changes going on! So many things growing and we have started harvesting. Chuck dug up all the potatoes and replanted. Total of 14.5# of Yukon gold potatoes out of a pound bag of seed potatoes. That is significant considering they cost $3.99# here in the states.
Ever see an artichoke growing? We never had so Chuck decided to plant some. He tried bed and flower pot and this is definitely better!
The cabbage, kale, and chard are doing awesome. We have planted cabbage in the past but he is experimenting with the kale and chard. The kale is the least favorite of the two.
Onions are starting to produce some are really getting big. Chuck harvested all the Garlic a couple days ago! Some of the bulbs are as big as an onion!
The brick flower bed is really coming along nice...here are some photos of that!
Did you know different beans have different color flowers? I didn't. Beans on the left are just blue lake bush beans and the ones on the left with purple flowers are black beans.
|We were given this plant as a wedding gift 42 years ago. It is over 7 feet tall today!|
|This is one of many babies I have cloned off that tree. I can't keep much of anything growing but this plant loves me!|
The potted plants on the deck!
I bought a blueberry sprig a couple years a go and this year it looks like we are actually going to get some berries!
Well that is it for me this week. Hope everyone has a great week!
