Spring Sediments!

 Spring Is Here To Stay!!


Well it looks like spring is finally here to stay, and I'll tell yah I couldn't be happier. For a time there it would get warm, then cold, then warm again, then it snowed, and it was starting to get very frustrating. Yesterday it was 73 degrees, and today it's 75 degrees. I love it! My cherry πŸ’ blossom tree is in full bloom, with lots of beautiful flowers. Obviously Nunah loves it as well, she's always out front laying under it's shade!! This morning Rob took a trip to Home Depot for a few things, and saw that the pansies were on sale, and bought a bunch of them. Unfortunately he didn't know they're not hearty enough for all summer, but he did also get some mini daffodils 🌼, which turned out to be quite beautiful.






I think with my magenta knock out, and long stem roses 🌹 along with all of the stargazers, I should have plenty of color this year. As long as the deer don't eat them. I'm definitely going to find a good deer repellent this year, because last year they ate every stargazer bud, like a week before they were set to bloom. I was so mad all summer because there were so many, and I know had they not messed with them, they would have been so plentiful. If you guys know any good repellant methods, please let me know. (The shot below is Nunah catching one in the act, eating our neighbors flowers.




This is one of the reasons that I haven't started my veggie garden. See the idea has been bouncing around in my head for 2 summers now, but I won't have a way to keep them out. Unless I chicken wire it all in, and I don't think that would be to favorable to the eye. Then it would be a fuss when I cut the grass, because I would have to weedwhack it, and get inside to de weed it. And whilst we're on the subject, spring means the start of cutting the lawn...ughhh! I'll ad it's great exercise that I'm always in need of, but it get monotonous having to do it constantly once a week. Sometimes twice, depending on how much it rains. I call it lawn slavery...lol! Only because I have a huge lawn, and it takes forever. Usually I do one half, and Rob does the other half. That way it's a joint effort, plus its just to much for just once person to take on. Ahh well, I figure that if deer and cutting the grass are my only gripes, that I'm in a good place. What's your gripes about spring? It's such an amazing season it's hard to find many. Passover has begun, and I'm definitely looking forward to all of the amazing meals with my friends and family. 



 Which reminds me, I have an amazing restaurant review coming up for the next post, so if you love ❤️ food, and or you're a Baltimore dweller, definitely stop back Wednesday. I have the best spot to share with you! Have a great day Dolls, and keep an eye out for upcoming posts.

  1. I have to say that I really envy people who have the patience to create beautiful yards with flowers and other adornments. I just don't have it. We have a nice lawn because hubby likes doing it and nice landscaping because we paid landscapers to create it and to maintain it. :)

    1. I have to say my hubby is the same with the yard, he is some much more involved than I am. I think it's my floral design background that pushes me to be a little OCD about my flower boxes and grass. Tho I must admit a landscaper would be amazing 🀣. Thanks for following hun!! 😘

  12. I love your landscape! I have to admit, I am actually pretty jealous that you get to see deer so close up! I know that they are probably a nuisance, but man I love nature! I grew up in the country, so I hope to one day be able to get out of the city again.

    1. Thanks so much you're super sweet!! Yeah I hear yah, when I lived in Baltimore for a few years it was definitely not home to me...I like it out here in the county but my brother has it even better he and his wife bought a house on top of a big mountain in Harpers Ferry so he has the best privacy and so much beautiful nature to look at. I envy him for that ...yes the deer can be quite annoying, all of my stargazers were starting to come up this year and they got me again. Thank goodness they only got half of them...I just don't know what to do to save the other 1/2!🀷‍♀️🀣
