Weaving and Sky Enticing

I've been bringing my weaving outside...
 
 
Teela naps and snores away nearby as I play and I love it so much.

 
These days full of snoring rabbits, flowers galore, beautiful wools and warm summer days are lovely.

 
The baby squirrels are becoming hardier and fuller and smarter about where we store the peanuts!

 
The skies have been so very enticing...

 
I still can't get into my kayak but I am enjoying summer from the yard just as well.

Grass Box Green

So in the Spring we had to pull out two dead trees which left a whole big area
that needed something so we decided on two tiered planters
one level for us with decorative grass and one level with normal edible grass for the babies.

 
We did the designing, he did the building, I did the painting, he did the filling, I did the planting.
 
 
We were able to fill them all up using our own compost which was satisfying.

 
We made bets on which bunny would be the first to explore them...I was right...it was Teela.
 
 
Than we planted our grasses and waited and waited and waited for things to grow.

 
And they did, beautifully and easily and quickly.
(my honey even pried all the boardwalk boards off to put them closer together for little bunny feet)
now it's one of the first pit stops when all of the buns get outside and
we love how it compliments the concrete water fountain that we made together ages ago.
Yayyyyy.

Up and Up

I am outside with sweet baby squirrels
 
 
and amazing cloudscapes (is that a word?)

 
and watercolours

 
and wind blown bunnies

 
uncomfortable body yes...but things are looking up and up.

We're Gonna Be Featured WOHOOOO

I am beyond excited, holy smokes.
I found out just a few days ago that my beloved blog, my artwork and the bunnies
will be featured in the November issue of Artful Blogging.
 
 
I am just in the throws of getting my article together,
finding and prepping all the photos and artwork that they requested.
I really really needed something extra amazing to happen and this fits the bill.  WOHOO!

Back To Gratitude

I've been spending days outside with our bounty of beautiful flowers
(I hobble from one to the other like a happy unstable little bee!).
 
 
I've dragged out my stitching box and have been enjoying some sweet slow felt embroidery...
 
 
I've been just sitting and watching our little heat-tuckered sweethearts nap away in the yard...
 
 
and I've been hanging out with one really super cute (and super duper sweet) bearded boy...
 
 
dislocated knee...sore head...whatever it may be...
I can handle these things best when I am embracing my usual grateful self!

Beautifully Bonkers

So this summer instead of buying tons of flats and waiting and waiting for the flowers to grow
(which is never super huge cause our seasons are so short)...
 
 
Back before May 24, we saw a great deal on already well established potted plants and well we decided happily to go flower beserk & really create an extra flowerly Eden for ourselves this year.

 
We filled the truck to the brim and than went back for more! It was soooo fun.
I choose half & my hon bun chose half.
 
 
It's been so deliciously wonderful to have mature flowers blooming all around us since spring
and it's been extra super duper wonderful since I am extra extra yard bound now with my knee.
