we just got back from 12 days in california and i was super excited to see the progress in my garden! the roses are blooming, my easter lillies are blooming and nothing died!!!! i even started to do some weeding during bowie's nap, and there is something soothing, relaxing and satisfying about it, who knew???
my mom made me get a salad spinner last time she was here and i do love it. but it is also great for soaking fruits and veggies as well. i don't know how effective a good rinse is, but i find when i soak my fruits i see a lot of junk at the bottom of the water, ewww. and it can double as a colander when done taking a dip!
my mom planted two types of tomatoes when she was here at the end of april, look how much they have grown in 6 weeks! these things are going to be monsters! since it was still on the cold side when they were planted she wrapped them in plastic, creating a green house for them. now that the weather has warmed up, the plastic is off and they seem to be happy!
this is something i am still not used to yet, but when we change the clocks and "spring ahead" the days here start to get long really quickly! currently the sun rise is at about 5:15am and the sunset is at about 9pm. i took this pic last week at 9:20pm and you can see it is still very light out. and with each passing day we gain a few extra minutes of sunlight. it's a good thing we have great black out blinds in all the rooms!
came across this website a while back and recently got it as a gift for my cousins wedding. i think this is the coolest! it is a custom star map of what the night sky looks like for a date and location close to your heart. i think it is perfect for a wedding gift or a new baby. you can personalize it with a few different color choices and text and they look amazing when framed! check out their website here
