Surprises



This happens every year at this time. I'm out of things to say about my garden and of course there's not much left to the garden anyway to talk about. I have a few articles stored up that I'll use a little at a time, but by and large, I can't think of a thing to say.

Some of this lack of brain activity comes from the fact that I am thinking about something else 24-7. Our house still hasn't sold! We are having another open house on Saturday so we've done a few upgrades to try to entice the new people who may be coming through. We installed a new dishwasher and washing machine, as well as a new breaker box, painted the garage and the balcony railing. Of course, to accomplish this meant multiple trips to places like Lowe's and Home Depot. I was quite irritated to think that I was purchasing these items for someone else, when I had needed them all these years myself. Oh well, that's what the TV shows say you should do to sell your house.
Being in these stores, and seeing all that is offered for a home do-it-yourselfer started conversations with my husband about the next house and new garden plans. Will there be room for arbors and a potting shed? Will we have room for vegetables and fruits? After spending hours on the computer researching and dreaming about our future, I stumbled across this site, which includes ideas on all kinds of projects, from home repair to gardening. It spurred me on with a new idea for my blog. In the future I will be pointing you to new sites to visit for your gardening projects and home projects, and letting you know how our plans are coming.
I haven't forgotten about my daylilies and herbs, I'm just in limbo for a while. If I happen to travel and find an exciting garden to share, I'll pop that in, too. I guess what I'm saying is that for a while this site will be full of surprises.

Don't forget to visit An Herbal Bedfellow for healthy recipes made with herbs, and also my newest blog:
Happenstance House -- A journal about my Victorian home and all of it's contents.

I'm sorry that your house hasn't sold yet, it must be really frustrating. Are you planning to take along some of your garden plants? I took quite a few when we left our home in Michigan, but only two have survived. Oh well!
