Busy as a Bumble Bee should Be

Things have been just a hoppin' around here as of late...

Did some fishin' Saturday night (no luck)

Sunday we went to an auction, 
I'll be back with pictures of my finds
lots of old chairs to re-do, antique tabletop desk, large cheesebox, lots
of bottles and a small table

Yesterday I spent 8 hours at my neighbors house painting her
kitchen.  So yes, today, my body is achin'....

This morning I took my coffee cup to the veggie garden, turned the soil and pulled some weeds

This is nothing more than a "table garden"
would love to have a big one but space & sunlight in the woods just
doesn't allow

Growing green beans, tomatoes, okra (for drying), mixed salad greens,
spinach, cucumbers, yellow squash
Sweet Annie ~n~ Sunflowers


Sweet Annie

Time for a salad


My flower garden turns to a shade garden this time of year
lots of shade loving plants

different blooms, different days

Orange Lilies

Bee Balm

Lamb's Ear

Blessings for this Tuesday...


  1. Your garden is looking awesome!

  2. Traci: Your garden is wonderful!!! Wish part of my yard was a forest...your plants are so much taller than mine-I planted mine at the end of May/early June.... your sweet annie looks amazing. I was thrilled when I rubbed the leaves of my 3 inch sweet annie leaves and smelled the wonderful aroma! Now I've never planted okra before(how do you use it in prims?)
    Have a great week!

  3. Traci
    Your garden looks so good~ mine is so wet~ nothing looks good!!!
    Pretty~ pretty flowers~ love the shade pic~ ( I don't have that shade at home~ so lovin your's)

  4. I love your garden. Your plants are looking great! We are doing containers on our deck. **We have voles, deer and elk, and none of our yard is fenced - We figured at least they won't climb the stairs up to the deck, so that is where we shall garden. ;)

    Looking forward to the pics of your finds. And I hope your body feels better from all that painting soon!

    Blessings, Jessica

  5. Hey, a table garden is great. I'd love to have one. How about a hot house to grow one in:)
    You can stretch out those sore muscles now:) That was very nice of you to paint at your neighbors. I know that's not easy work.

  6. Beautiful garden Traci - and nare a weed to be seen! (Love, love, astilbe, but can't grow it with all our sun...well,,,,perhaps this year - there hasn't been much sun in Nod as of late...)
