Pretty things

Just because, I wanted to share my "pretty plantings" from this weekend as well.

PROGRESS!!

Tomato Blooms! WOOT WOOT!

Looking out from my garden.

My crazy lettuce bed that desperately needs to be weeded! (I'm so far behind still but its getting better!)

Squash and Zuchini in the front box. In the back box are cucumbers, corn, and peppers.

Greenbeans, eggplants, petunia's (they make the greenbeans taste better).

Our Visitor


Yesterday while enjoying a perfect southern day, I kept hearing this odd whirring sound. I didn't pay much attention as I was busy planting my greenbeans and eggplants. My dogs were lazily lying on the porch and my horses were grazing in the pasture as the sun glinted off my the sparkling water in my pool. It was a perfect afternoon!

Then armegeddon happened. My dogs went apeshitbatty cowering down and barking. My horses started screaming and bucking and running, the roar grew louder and a shadow fell across the ground. OMG there are lunatics in a hot air balloon trying to crash into my house and they are WAVING at me? Are you kidding? The Roar ofcourse was them laying on the gas (or whatever it is they do) to keep the ballon aloft. I gathered they were specifically trying to keep it low so that the neighborhooods could read the giant LUBRANO's PIZZA sign on the side.

Don't get me wrong, it was a neat advertising ploy and one I'm sure the kids in the area enjoyed but did you have to scare the ever loving crap out of my animals? I enjoy a hot air balloon siting and all, but pretty please keep it a little higher next time. kthxbai

BTW: I really do love Lubrano's. I loved you more when you delivered. Since you can afford a hot air balloon ride over my house does that mean you will deliver to it again?

Laughs Hysterically

Just because, I haven't had a lot of updates, I decided to atleast amuse you. We have had so much rain, its not funny, my garden is not planted. I've been working liking crazy. DH did get two of the boxes rebuilt and three of them have manure and just need to be tilled and planted. So there is progress but I am resigned to not only having a late garden but having a small variety this year. Fortunately, my parents planted an abundance.
But back to posting..this picture made me laugh outloud. Love it.

Who needs scaffolding when you have enough hay bales?
