Happy Sunday

Yesterday a.m. was spent in our current** yard,

where I happily pulled 1,000+ weeds + fertilized a few things.

**Sure, we’re moving — but it’s still a morale boost to beautify what we have now!

We transplanted some coneflowers from our front garden

to some pesky bare spaces out back.

These are known as “purple” coneflowers,
although they’re actually pink.

Just a few years ago, we planted 5 of these beauties in our front landscaping,

+ they’ve reseeded + multiplied liked crazy!

Coneflowers might be my #1 favorite perennial flower . . .

. . . they come in so many varieties.

Look at this one!  I just found it online!

Giant Coneflower

6′ tall — very strong stems + wind-resistant

I’m loving the wacky blue foliage!

I don’t “do” any yellow flowers here, but maybe at the next house?

But back to yesterday.

It was a great day, with gardening in the a.m.,

a St. Louis Cardinal victory in the afternoon,

Go Cardinals!

Go Cardinals!

+, in the evening, we headed over to our new garage.

Look!  My pair of containers + new boxwoods made the trip . . .

. . .  + G.O. hung our cottage-y light fixtures!

All that white trim I kept bragging about is making its debut, too.

What do you think?

I couldn’t love it more!
