Reluctant Gardening

All to often lately, I've been slaving away in the garden instead of stitching indoors. This is our first veggie garden and it's really not any fun yet. We've put lots of time and cash into setting things up with a super-high fence to keep out the deer and sprinklers.

Now comes my part... the actual planting.  At lease I have these two sillies to keep me entertained.  They know what to do with all the red clay I dig out.

Making Mud Cake

It's takes a load of self-discipline to toil in the sun when Good Folks fabric is calling me inside. Here is a peek at what I'm working on now for my mama in the nighttime hours.

Meanwhile, the azaleas have taken siege.  Our humble home is surrounded with a riot of blooms.  Literally surrounded.

Although the azaleas are having their moment in the limelight, my favorite view is the treeline along the meadow where a hint of dogwood blooms can still be spotted.

Isn't spring delicious?
