So little Time, So much to do

That's basically how I feel about my garden and flowers right now. Everything should have been done weeks ago, but the one thing you can't help is the weather. Someone told me yesterday that they put in a large amount of flowers the end of May, only to have them all be drenched and pretty much rotted by our large amount of rain around the beginning of June. She said she just couldn't afford to do it all over again. Which makes me glad I did wait.

I've been to around 7 garden shops in the last week looking for yellow pear tomatoe plants. We love those little things. They hardly ever make it into the house when they ripen, as we pretty much pick them and eat them right away. It doesn't appear as if anyone has them this year. Plus, I've been shopping a little veggie/flower clearance, which is hard to believe considering the huge amount of plants some stores still have. I'm guessing that's due to the late planting season as well.

Today I plan to do some painting outside, as well as put in more flowers. And something is telling me if I don't go u-pick more strawberries I will really regret it in a few months.

Our temperatures are in the 80's this week by the way. The warm weather seems here to stay (finally:). Our clouds are a little hazey; they say it's from the fires burning in California.

I wanted to mention that Kristy at Homemakers Cottage is having another giveaway. She has a lovely blog and I enjoy her thoughtful posts; plus I love giveaways;).

Have a wonderful day~

My yards and gardens are taking every spare minute! What are you going to paint. I guess I should just drop by to see your handiwork.

Don't drop by until this weekend; I'm doing a little transforming of the front yard, and I don't want anyone to see it until it's totally done:) Well, if you want to watch me paint, I quess you could do that too, but I might hand you a brush, LoL.

Dont forget to wear a hat and loads of sunscreen.
My oriental lillies were so puny this year because I forgot to water them(ever)

Oh, please take before and after pictures if you are transforming your front yard. What fun!

And I don't think you can have too many strawberries in your freezer!
