~Summertime and the Digging Ain't Easy!

Thank you all for stopping by. I'll catch up with you shortly.
Right now we are taking a week to try to get the gardening in order.
That would be easier if I didn't keep expanding the flower beds.

This is one of the areas where we've been. One side of the walkway is all done and growing for a couple of weeks, this side we started on this week. Great progress, lots of showers and scrubbing. How can one little woman get so dirty?!! Oh yes, it's the tomboy still buried not so deeply in there. But the sweet husband is by far doing the bulk of the work.
After removing the grass, putting in the new stones, and before planting. It looks smaller here. The size is really about 18 feet deep by 22 feet wide.
Hope you week is going great, I'll be by to catch you with you soon!


  1. It's going to look very pretty!!!

  2. I am sure when it is finished, it will look as beautiful as the inside of your house!

  3. Everything is looking beautiful! I love how lush your garden already is...I'd give anything to have your climate.

    Keep us posted on your progress!

    xo, Andrea

  4. It's going to be spectacular, Donna!

    Can't wait to see the results of your labors!

  5. Wondered where you've been...I should have known...digging in the dirt! Your hubby must be on another vacation week, LOL. Looks like great progress already. Can't wait to see more!


  6. Your garden looks amazing! I am digging myself, except ours is a new home and we are thus starting from scratch. Lots of dollars being forked over at the garden center...

    Love your blog,

  7. So much work at the beginning, but then you can float a little......What a charming area this is going to be!

  8. Hi Donna....please stop by my blog when you can. My inspiration post today was done with you particularly in mind. :)

    Love, Andrea

  9. Donna-just had to say I love your porch and front door-it's lovely!!

  10. That's hard work especially in this heat! Sounds like fun though. I always like working on projects with my husband. I'm sure it will look quite lovely when you're finished - can't wait to see it!


  11. You've been busy! It looks so pretty. Smart woman getting out there before the dog days of summer. Is it just me, or has it been cooler than we might expect this time of year?

  12. Oh lovely!!! Can't wait to see it all done and growing happily.


  13. What a wonderful place already! I can not wait to see what you are doing with this special area. I already know it will be amazing!
    (I have your fairy posted today!)
