Swamp in the Backyard!

special you are.”- unknown

I hope you all had a fabulous Mother’s Day, I know I did. When my babies are in the house I am so happy! Jackson‘s garden is fully planted and will always be a special comfort to us all. We are all pleased with the look. Here is a part of the hydrangeas. There are 11 in all.

The kids helped plant the rest of the garden as well as some other spots in our backyard. Sixteen holes were dug and planted. Our children were so terrific to come and plant! It was a fun Mother’s day! I couldn’t be more grateful.

We had a great cookout and sat on the porch enjoying the weekend. There was one little mishap. Apparently when the Earl de Schlep and I were digging last weekend we hit a pipe in our sprinkler system. oooops! So now we have a swap back there. Russ and the Earl were literally on their knees in Georgia red clay trying to do the repair but gave up. I  decided that we should make lemonade of the situation and just plant some rice in the swamp! We may have the first rice paddy in Georgia! Very funny The rest of the team decided we should call someone to fix the situation.

Today I am sewing and working on some fun new things. I have office work to do and BJ is coming over. In fact she is on her way now!!! We are almost ready for the debut of our newest pattern in the Celebrations Line of patterns. The name of the pattern will be Lazy Days. I can’t wait to show you. Soon very very soon. 

Time to get back to showing some sewing
