Getting Ready For The Big Event

A few glimpses of the goings-on here the last few days…  My sweet hubby scrubbing off the upstairs siding.  He and my girls have helped me so much, I cannot tell you how much.

Here is another of the wonderful pillows my mom has made me.

And a cute curtain I got last weekend at a yard sale for 50 cents!  It makes a great runner on the potting bench.

The buggy seat will be out for the tour, then back in the house…. too nice to let the weather destroy, but it looks so cute there.

This has been a big help, the four wheeler and wagon to haul rock and cuttings to the compost pile.  More trips than I can count…. but so nice to throw things into.

Another basket, two for a dollar this time…. a garbage bag and presto…..

Two cute hangings on my patio doors!

One of the fancy poppys…. so pretty.  Hopefully we’ll have them blooming Saturday too.

Last but not least, we welcomed a new addition to the family.  Big sister got a kitten she named Milo…. little sister is getting one too, but it is not ready yet.  She wants to call hers Otis.

He is tiny, but really sweet… and spoiled.  Hoping he will be a good mouser and keep the bunnies out of the flowers!

I’ll be busy from here on out.  I have on my paint clothes and am ready to go outside for the day.  Have to get a bit more mulch, paint some chairs and the front door.  But I am getting excited about the garden tour.  The first one is always the biggest deal I guess.  My mom is coming over to help today and hubby picked up a pizza for their lunch so I don't have to cook.   Again, thanks so much for all the help guys…. After all this we can relax, I promise….lol.

Happy Gardening….Brooke
