Random Goodness

My mother picked and brought me these strawberries from my Aunt Rachel's garden.

These were the first homegrown strawberries I have had this season, and YUM! so very good!

I just now brought in most of my lettuce - with the weekend heating up I'm afraid it will get bitter.

I love getting up early and doing a little gardening! 

Not so happy to see what the deer ate, though!

Here is some front yard progress:

We got the stone slab/step moved back in place and patched the porch floor.

I was all excited about getting the porches sanded and painted but now it looks like we'll have to let the new wood dry out before we work on it.

I'm going to go ahead and plant my Annabelle Hydrangeas - and woe to the workman who so much as bumps them!  (Only half way joking. We'll be hiring someone to sand the porches, and I think I'll put trashcans over the hydrangeas!)

I've been dreaming of Hydrangeas for a very long time and I'm so excited to finally get them!

I was told not to expect to much in the way of blooms this year but next year they should be beautiful.

You all have a happy three-day weekend!
