We recently had a baby shower at our house. What made it so special is that it was for my oldest daughter Tessa and son-in-law Elijah. They will be first-time parents of an adored little daughter soon. It seems so surreal to not be the one having the babies after being pregnant or nursing for the span of 11 years, but this is definitely such a special time...this Grammy can't wait to hold her little sweetpea.
The decorations for Tessa's shower were so much fun since she wanted a woodland feel. Old crate, branches, pine cones, flowers from my garden and the neighbors as well. Tessa found a recipe for blackberry frosting and it was yummy :)
I love being in the garden. I can't believe it's the same place that last year I was ready to give up on. With the help of hard-working friends it has been transformed. There is still more work to be done in moving blueberry and raspberry plants in here and I have dreams of building some sort of a small shed and cold frames.
My beans and corn were planted late, but I think there is still time. We harvested a row of potatoes (yum!) and I plugged some smaller one's back in the row that we harvested.
