Nothing too crafty going on around here! We've been spending a lot of time working outside, enjoying the beautiful weather. Luckily I have my #1 helper with me!
The one thing that grows the best in my yard is mint. Don't you love the little tags? Head here if you would like some for yourself!
This probably seems really weird, but this is the first few shovels of our very own compost! Isn't it beautiful? We live in the land of hard sticky clay soil. It begs for a little compost mixed in every year. We started our compost bin several years ago, but never took any out until now. Aside from a half decomposed avocado shell, it looked great!!
Hope you all have great plans for the long weekend. Our schedule is pretty full, but I'm hoping to fit in a lot of relaxing! Stay safe!
