Weekend Recap

We finished getting all of our seeds and little seedlings into the ground. They were really starting to fade, I think some heavy storms did them in while we were hardening them off. I'm keeping my fingers crossed. We gardened all weekend, now, we water and wait.
Wildflowers are blooming everywhere now. If I am lucky, we will have a supply of fresh flower bouquets throughout most of the summer. It is so nice to have a vase of fresh flowers to brighten up the home. It feels like an amazing gift.

Stealing a quiet moment.

Grateful for sunshine after many rainy days.

A gourd birdhouse, handmade, and gifted from our kind neighbors.

Basic Directions
In the fall after the first frost and the vine dies, pick the gourd.
Dry in the garage throughout the winter.
Drill two holes in the top to loop a hanger
Drill about an inch diameter hole for the entrance
Drill 3 drainage holes in bottom
Hang between open air and forest, about 7 ft. up or so to attract wrens
Can't wait to try it ourselves
