There’s no denying it, Forrest and his dad are good at building stuff. Also, digging up dead plants, but that’s another story. Here they are piecing together a compost bin for our backyard with old pallets! Awesome. Maybe this compost will be the answer to all of our grass and plant problems! Oh, and […]
Have you tried one of these things?! They have everything in the world. It’s like going to the Coca Cola place in Atlanta without the hassle of all those tourists. Or the drive to Atlanta. More importantly, my lilac bush is beginning to bloom! I love the spring. It just smells good outside. <3, Liz
Found this nest out front the other day. Some of those sticks are big! I bet it could’ve supported some chunky baby birds. Matthew, my cousin/our ring bearer, carried a nest down the aisle when we got married. We found his nest in my grandparents’ yard. Nests always remind me of our wedding day! Matthew […]
Strange things have been happening in the backyard. Pots are overturned, holes dug, chair pillows moved around, bird baths full of dirt, tomatoes gone missing, gnomes knocked over. Forrest estimates that it all started mid-summer. But we have so many stray cats around that I really assumed we had some annoying tomcat spending his nights […]
These beauties are gracing my bedside table this week. They are chocolate sunflowers from Floral & Hardy Farm in Lexington, SC. Aren’t they just the most perfect fall flower? I’m in love with their deep color. Hemingway likes them, too.
I found a dead cicada on the deck the other day. So naturally I brought it inside. And just after I perched it on the cake plate in the kitchen, Forrest walked in with the shell of a grasshopper he found in the garden. Perfect. <3, Liz
Earlier I wrote a crazy, ranting post. Then I took a long nap and deleted it. I was a little too exhausted and it was just a little too crazy. Instead of a crazy rant, here’s my version of our week. Last night, I decided that I wanted to hang with the boys. That is, […]
We love terrariums around here. They’re beautiful AND they keep the cats away from plants. Double score. Hemingway has a thing for plants. As in, she destroys and eats them. Growing plants behind glass has become one of our favorite ways to have green things in the house without the risk of an emergency vet […]
POTATO HARVEST! So what if our garden only produced 8 spuds (9 if you count the rotten one)? We are super proud of these little guys. These jalapenos are pretty exciting, too. Lots more ready soon.
Rember those little tomatoes from the other day? Well they were ripe when we got home today! Only two were ready, so we each got one. They are sweet little suckers, but they still have a bit of that nice tomato bite. Now we just need our other tomatoes to start ripening up so we […]
