Amazingly enough Ron's been hauling around some of his plants for 15 years in pots, just waiting for the day when we would own a home and he could plant them in the ground. We were hardly able to do any gardening at our last rental, (they didn't like plants and flowers I guess), but now he can garden to his heart's content and use his horticulture and gardening skills to create beauty all around us. We've had some iris bulbs for 12 years that have never bloomed until we came here. My theory is they know they're home finally.
The picture below reminds me of a woodland retreat. I'm tempted to do a painting of it, hmmm..

Potato leaves (4 potato varieties), and onions and carrots in the background.
This boy loves lettuce!
Peas are planted with the string all tied up and ready to go.

Mushroom gnome still in progress. I plan to mat it with the cute woodsy floral printed fabric behind it. I got this design free on line.

Yesterday the kids and I were out in Old Town for our Los Bagels/pigeon outing when I saw a 60% off sign in a local shoe store. Anything over 50% off must be investigated! After searching through discounted shoes I found these beauties. They are Earth shoes, which I've always wanted, but could never justify paying $140 for! But at 60% off who could resist?
I had fun in Photoshop. Justin said, "Mom, take my picture." I love this pose, what a looker!
Head enjoying some peace and quiet.
I keep taking pics of these beauties because they will be gone soon!

I rarely encounter days as perfect as this day was. There is something so amazing about gathering with good friends at your home to celebrate your child's birthday. Everyone was smiling and happy, laughing and enjoying themselves. I felt so grateful for family, good friends, and life in general. The clouds parted for the party, then the rain started up again when it was over. I couldn't help feeling like God had smiled on the day just for us.
