As I have alluded to previously, this seamstress doesn't stay indoors all the time plugging away in her sewing room. =) I love to garden. Mom does too, but with seven of us children (half of which are in their teens and twenties) still at home, she doesn't have time to garden, so I get to take on the blessing of doing about 75% of the yard work and tending the gardens.
Yesterday in my vegetable garden I planted peas, a couple rows of two varieties of peppers (anyone have any special tips on growing them? I haven't had any good success, but I keep trying!), green onions, a couple rows of two kinds of lettuces, and then this weekend when the last frost date is past, I'll be planting tomatoes.
Since all you see in my garden is dirt mounds, I thought I'd take a couple pictures near our cottage abode. This picture is actually of our neighbors lilac bushes in full bloom. Their scent is heavenly.
