Making Progress

I haven't been in my sewing room the past few days instead I have been busy outside..........

The first coat of stain on the front porch, the second coat will go on next week, I have no time to get it done before a family gathering this weekend........

I  finished laying the bricks in front of the garden gate, it's not perfect but it fits with the rest of the garden.
 Found the strawberry plants, most have made it through this very dry summer.
Took the weed wacker and cleaned up around the hives, love it when my apiary looks neat and tidy,  next week I need to spend a little time looking in the hives........
 The cutting garden, had to take a moment to enjoy the beautiful zinnias.........

........and the garden along the fence with all the honey and bumble bees buzzing in the anise hyssop.

Hope I have the energy tomorrow to find my carrots.........I thought a before photo would help you appreciate the after photo!

After the family gathering on Saturday I will be able to get back to some sewing, especially since my yard and garden are in good shape.

I really enjoy hearing your comments, sorry I had to turn on the "word verification" but I got my first comment from a "non-person".......I prefer comments from people.
