Hot fun in the summer

Flowers in my yard (anyone know what they are?)


This past weekend Scott built a railing for the side of the deck. Keeps the kids & dog from jumping off and digging! We still have to stain it and sand/stain the rest of the deck (again.)


Yesterday I finished building a flowerbed in what was the digging pit. I still need to add some more plants and mulch -not sure if I'm going to move some plants from other areas or just buy new. (See my little banana trees!)

Here are a couple of frugal ideas:

An old IV hanger as a plant stand (got it at a yard sale for $2) Won't rust and has wheels!

Grow your own basils (3 kinds here)

Not the best picture but this is a pretty asparagus fern I planted in an old basketball goal that is grown into the oak tree
