Winter and spring seem to be fighting each other here in Ohio. One day we’ll have sunshine and the next light snow. Sun seems to be winning more often the past couple of weeks, but we still have a ways to go. With all the rain of have had plenty of opportunity to wear my new yellow wellies around while we start to tackle house projects.
I finally got my new roses in huge pots and on the back patio. Allison of Monkey’s Always Look was sweet enough to custom make these garden markers for me with the rose name and year planted. I’m a little obsessed with categorizing things and naming things. Yesterday the roses seemed to really be settling in and enjoying the morning sunshine.
We still have not been able to get our edible garden planted. With the threat of frost the past few weeks it’s been too risky. I’m hoping next weekend if we have time, but this growing season will probably be somewhat disappointing because the weather is so weird this year.
I have been opening the blinds to let some light in the living room and Logan has a new favorite spot. He would sit there all day and watch the world go by if we would let him.
I feel like this week was the quiet before the storm. May is going to be very hectic. I’ll be flying out to Oregon for a whirlwind weekend to see my brother walk at his college graduation. We have a backpacking trip planned for the dog and us Memorial weekend. We have a family wedding and the start of the local farmers market next weekend.
In between we have lots of planning and preparing to do. What started as a large project has recently snowballed into something MUCH larger. I don’t want to delve into details yet, but hopefully within the next week or so I can. I am ready to get moving on this one, but there is a lot of prep to get done before we dive in. I’m excited but also a little anxious. This will be the biggest project we have tackled yet. I can’t wait to share it with you.
