Stripes & Flowers

So over the last couple weeks we have put quite a bit of time into our yard (still a work in progress). We have planted grass seed, re-done the flower bed, and even planted some fruit (tried actually… repeatedly). The bare pot that Byntlie is looking at, are her “strawberries”. We planted them a couple of weeks ago it really just looks like we are growing weeds. I clearly have no idea what I’m doing. We’re going to empty it out and start over fresh (3rd times a charm right?).  Wish us luck.

We’ve had a neighbor who fed every stray kitty on the block for years…. Well he moved away and now those cats have made their way into our yard. By yard I mean flower bed. Using it for something it’s NOT. So we planted lavender, chocolate mint (Benny picked it from the picture of a chocolate cupcake), and lemon thyme along the porch. Since planting, we have not had one kitty pile and it seems we are no longer the kitty hangout of the block!  Next to come is lemon grass on the porch, hoping to get rid of mosquitos. We spend a lot of time on the front porch watching the girls play and the mosquitos just have to go.

We are getting closer and closer to summer… aside from those random days when the high is in the 60’s. And as excited as I am for that, I am dreading  how hot this summer is going to be…. I mean did we even have winter this year??
