How does my garden grow?

It was a hot day – 80’s and Mom and I were up at the house on Main St. working on my garden there. I went to a plant swap last week and Mom sent me with extras from her yard to trade for stuff for my new garden. I got hostas, lily-in-the-valley, and a few other things that like shade – all on the one side of the house it is almost full shade, so I am putting in a shade garden there. Mom and I muscled rocks and shoveled dirt. We made a set of stone steps leading to the little patio, and planned a few little flower beds. I was so excited at what we got done in just a few hours – thanks to my Mom! I wish we had before and after pictures, but the camera’s still getting repaired! ๐Ÿ™ At least we will have it for afterwards. ๐Ÿ™‚ That’s the best part.By the time I finished hauling water and giving everything a good drink, I was filthy and sweaty hot! I am real pleased with how it looks now. Though the house won’t be livable for months, the first impression as you walk up to the back door is very welcoming.

    welcome, girls! I am so delighted that you stopped by!

    Yes, Lily-of-the-valley will be one of the main flowers in my shade garden!

    Serena, someday my husband and I will build our dream house on our own property (hopefully!)looking over the lake…the house on main st. is a fixer-upper we will abide in until we buy our land! We have been in a trailer since our marriage, so I am excited to move into a real house.

    Are you and your husband building a house? Your garden sounds lovely, Lily-in-the-Valley! Lily-of-the-valley is my favorite flower.
