Thank you for all your comments on the house closing earlier this week. I’m happy to say, things went quite smoothly. We got an email from the lawyer that the deal was done, and an hour or so later, we had the keys in our hand
It was a little anti-climatic, actually. It probably would have been more exciting had we been moving in that day, but as you know, we’ve got some renovations to do before we make that leap.
As you read this, I should be on the road to my brother’s. He’s giving us an old box trailer so we can haul away all the old carpet and paneling as we pull it out.
Meanwhile, back in the garden, we are in a bit of an “in between” time. Most of the spring flowers are done, and the summer flowers aren’t quite ready yet.
The Iceland Poppies are one of the few things blooming. In fact, I’ve never had so many blooms up all at once on them.
The ants are hard at work on the peonies. I expect they will fully open this week.
In another week or so, I should have some ripe, juicy strawberries to eat. That is if the buns leave them for me. It won’t happen this year, but I plan to build some big raised beds for edible gardens at the new place. One will be ALL strawberries.
The Bachelor Buttons should start blooming soon too. These ones always bring in the bees.
It turns out, I lost four roses in total after the great garden move last fall.
Since I’ve forgotten which I planted where, I have to wait for them to bloom to know which ones survived. I really hope Garden Party and Honey Perfume are among them. Eventually there will be LOTS of roses at the new place.
Meanwhile… Burton has discovered the cat nip pots…
