Happy Father’s Day!

Although we did not get to spend this beautiful Father’s Day weekend with our dads, we did do dad-like things in that we worked around the yard and the house and watched the U.S. Open.  And we wish them and all dads out there a great Father’s Day!

My transplanted rose bush started popping ….

Mamma Bird was busy again, too – on Saturday, she was up to 3 eggs in the nest!

I'm so in love with the color!

Attempting to continue my gardening streak, I cleaned out the containers Jeffrey gave me and re-planted them with some vegetable plants.  I don’ think they will grow in such a small container, but it’s also kind of a test to see if that area of the yard gets enough sunlight to eventually sustain a full garden.

 

I also spent a few hours digging out the weeds that are overgrowing the curb in the yard.  (the “curb in the yard” being a separate issue that was once a driveway, but will not be used as a driveway by us, so instead is a dividing wall for now…).  The drainage is terrible  from the top of the curb into the flower bed and herb garden, and with all the rain we’ve had lately, a lot of soil got washed away and a lot of new weeds popped up.  For example, above the herb garden was looking like this:

I dug out about half the curb and planted some grass seed.  We will see what happens!  The dirt should settle in soon and hopefully we will get some grass along the edge ….

Meanwhile, the Tile Master got half the bathroom floor done!  Not yet grouted, but it’s bold and crazy tile and I’m really excited about it!  (and more bathroom blog posts to follow, obv.)  What do you think?

But I think the most exciting Father’s Day news is for the Papa Robin, who is going to have not three, but 4 babies ….  Mamma laid one more egg today!

FOUR!

FOUR!

And how was your weekend?
