Well I sit here and think where as Spring gone the robins are everywhere, bunnies are out with there babies...everything seems to be new. Yet the temperature seems to be going from one extreme to the other. Its warm, than its hot, then its cold...I am a bit confused, my veggies are confused, wear a sweater, don't wear a sweater...I feel like knitting its cooler..should I hibernate I mean really...all I can say is those going through the change of life should be comfortable...the sky has been so cloudy and the days gloomy...I was hanging out clothes there for awhile during a week of a warm streak and yes the hanging clothespin bag will be in the shop done. I love the red and white stripes, there will be blues and more...my second oldest, Aaron, brought my grand daughter over on mother's day. It was such a treat to see Emma. She's the one in this photograph, my sons only child who turned one on May 9th. She is a busy body, doesn't stop walking and just chats away as she does...then will stop to say No very clearly. I am so impressed by her father, my son, who just loves having a little girl, and really gets in to clothing for her...he said, mom, the way one can dress a girl there is so much more than for a boy. She made my mother's day as did seeing my son...he is a very busy man, designs car parts for everyday car engines and race cars. Travels the world with his job...I am proud of what he has accomplished. I did get the rest of my bed today...finally the frame arrived. It seems it's been forever since I ordered the darn thing. So now I can begin to put the bedroom together and begin photographing, I even thought of ways to photograph outside. Bare with me we are finally getting to home plate...and when I do you will find the wait was worth it all.

What's going on...Well currently I am waiting for my new bed to arrive for photographing the linens and such....there has been a bit of a delay in delivery. Once it arrives all will begin with photographs then uploading to the online shop.
In the meantime, I have prepared the garden for all the veggies to be planted this weekend. Its smaller this year as you can see in the back. I am fencing in the area this year to keep rabbits and deer out, with my neighbor not planting in the last few years, my garden gets a lot of wild life attention not wanted. So far its just been preparing the area for the outdoor furniture and things. It is however, so very nice to see all things spring blooming.
With the cold weather the Lavender really took a beating this past winter. Oh how sad, I was to see all but two survive. Although the lavender plants are clearly not deceased there was a ton of pruning back the dead areas. Last spring I only had to prune one as far back as the one in the photograph which turned out fine, it came back as the season progressed. I am hoping the same. I did have a couple lavender plants damaged from rabbits nesting. Bless their hearts I had to take them out, no babies yet, however I did have to remove the nest to cut back the damage. I've had my lavender nearly 4 years, and oh, how beautiful they have been, until this year. There are new shoots appearing so I hope all turns out well for the plants. I darn not say I may not get much as far as blooming this season. On the good side my new lavender plants arrived today, so, they will be planted in a couple days.
Before I close this post I do have a question and would appreciate your input. Currently I have the online shop set as Nesting in Love...I am also considering Naturally Nesting. Any input would be nice.
Have a wonderful Day!
