goings on this weekend





Look how fast our garden is growing!  LOL  Actually it's not growing fast at all.  We just planted a few rows of seeds on Saturday morning and I planted some already growing plants on Saturday evening while the blackflies attacked me.  They were nasty!!  

Murray made some plant markers for the ends of the rows out of pieces of deck boards.  :)
Soon there will be little sprouts poking through.  Right?

Our front deck on Saturday evening.  The two hanging baskets will go on the pergola when it is completed.  Speaking of which....

It's coming along.  This was Friday evening.  The pergola is the part at this end.  It's going to be very sturdy!   Praying for good weather this week so they can get more done.  It's calling for possible thunder showers tomorrow and Tuesday.  They worked in the rain all day Friday.  Note that the hydrangea bush is right into the deck!  It has to be removed.  ;(  I'm hoping our son can dig it out and place it in the back lawn.  It's such a beauty every fall just loaded with blooms.

Sunday was our church's "Day of Thunder".  A beautiful day, huge crowd and lots of participants made for a very successful event.  There were some great old cars there - my favourites.  :)

Allium ~ such a cool looking plant.


It was a beautiful weekend with lots of sunshine and hot temperatures of 25-27C for early June.  Tonight's sunset was quite pretty....even the dandelion fluffs were pretty.  All those seeds are going to land in our garden too.  yay  You should see up the hill in the grass.....little balls of white waiting for the wind.  :-}

Oh yes, thousands millions billions of these.

Mr. Moon.

The new buds on the Jack Pine tree.  Aren't they neat looking?



The end of a perfect summery weekend.



I hope you had a great weekend and that the week ahead is a beautiful one for you.  I am truly thankful for the blessings and beauty of this past week.  

Blessings,
Pam

  1. Wow! The garden in and the deck very well begun. I am looking out at the very same moon shining inthe southern sky through my transom. I think I can see the man in the moon. I once had my very large azalea dug up and moved succesfully. It was right in front of the front door. Give your son his Wheaties!

  3. Wow, your sunset photos are impressive, Pamela. And you almost made the dandelion look like something that's desirable for ones yard!
    I think that deck will be around long after we are gone, it looks very substantial!
    I can't wait to see that garden in a month. It will be beautiful by then..

  7. It looks like a lovely weekend indeed Pam, your new deck looks very impressive and sturdy indeed and it will be lovely to have the pergola to sit in the shade as well and admire your plants and the garden. Could your hydrangea just be trimmed back a little so that it could stay where it is? Love the little pinecones that are coming! xx

  8. What a fabulous series of photos. Hope the weather holds for you - it's been a little uncertain in the UK.

  10. Oh Pam Allium is a very pretty plant I love them too. Your photos are fantastic. Your deck is coming along and those black flies are nasty here too. I have a big fat bunny who ate all my Kale plants but she is so darn cute and we have not seen them for years so I am going to forgive here and try to find another way to grow them. Hug B

  13. Your pergola is going to be so great. Wondering what you will plant around it. Anything that will grow up and over? Beautiful images. Isn't summer the best when it hasn't heat peak temps. Carol

  14. The deck project is coming along nicely. So much work and we get so anxious for the work to be done. It is like having another room to decorate and furnish. I have always wanted to take the perfect dandelion photo and you have.

  18. I like the updates on the deck; it`s going to be incredible, Pam. Your large vegetable garden should mean a plentiful harvest at your home. I`m just hoping my tomatoes grow!

  19. Wonderful, wonderful post with all sorts of news. I'm in a hurry....Jim is taking me shopping!!!! Talk to you soon.

  20. Pamela,

    So much prettiness everywhere! The pink flowers are the perfect pop of colour on your deck. The yellow hanging baskets will be a lovely addition to your pergola-in-the-making, and the alliums, dandelions and buds on the Jack Pine are equally beautiful, all in their own way. You know that I'm actually missing those dramatic thunderstorms of southern Ontario? I guess the rain will be appreciated where your new plantings are peeking through the ground.

    Have a wonderful week!

    Hugs,
    Poppy

  22. Looks like there is quite a lot going on at your place! The deck/pergola looks like it is going to be just a wonderful addition for outdoor activities! Your pics are gorgeous as always but that last one with the sun setting on those dandies is my absolute fave.

  23. Your deck looks so inviting! It will be fun to see the finished pergola.

  24. I can't wait to see more pics of your pergola. We want AND need one in our courtyard. It's on our wish list! Would love to hear how you like yours....when it's up and you've had a chance to be outside under it! Hugs!

  25. I enjoyed your tour...
    The Hydrangea will be fine...don't worry!
    How is your Kalanchoe doing?
    I bought 3 for my outdoor planter...
    Your deck will be awesome!
    Enjoy your week...
    Cheers!
    Linda :o)

  26. You are going to have a wonderful deck and pergola! Dandelions must be all over. Kathy Goes A Rambling posted a whole crop of them today. Can't wait to see pictures.

  27. Your garden is looking good! I hope you have enough rain to sustain it. The deck is coming along, too. Can't wait to see the finished product! Beautiful shot of the dandelions!

  31. Isn't it good to see everything growing? Miss S has discovered "dandy flowers -- white ones" and loves blowing them. I cringe a little, thinking of all the seeds she launches into the air, but when I can suppress that thought, I have to admit that they're pretty and lots of sun to play with.

  32. I love that photo of the dandelions! That's quite a garden you have there!! I only started a few things from seed this year - just didn't have time with trying to get the house ready to sell.

  33. Pam, the pergola is coming right along. Hope the weather holds out for you. Those dandelions are such a nusiance (sp?) but can't help admiring them in the setting sun. Hope your week will be glorious..Happy Tuesday..Judy
