This weekend was a bust for the most part as far as yard work went. Saturday, I rounded up my bridesmaids and dragged them to Fall River, MA to look for bridesmaid dresses. That was fun...to watch...I am not looking forward to having to wear a dress at all - not that I'm opposed to dresses, I just prefer to wear them in a color that matches dirt... I've never been particularly girly. We'll see.
Anyway, Saturday evening I had a little run in with my bees, I'll spare you the gory details but lets just say it involved a curious dog, less then patient bees and me getting stung...a lot. I went to the doctors today for an unrelated issue and the doctor made me an appointment with an allergist because apparently I had a delayed onset reaction... which you can read as my foot is roughly twice it's normal size and my forearm is as big as my leg. No big deal. Oh well. Note to self, do not attempt to stop a curious dog.
Sunday, a little sore from my bee incident the day before, I decided to take it easy. So, I went with Aunt Jill to The Farmer's Daughter. This place was absolutely amazing!!! They had just about everything under the sun. I had to really hold myself back, but I only ending up with a butterfly weed and Red Salvia. You could spend hours at this nursery if you wanted to really take a look at everything. While we were there they were having an event that included guest speakers and members of the Master Gardeners Program. After that we went to Simple Pleasures which is a cute gift shop that has tons of glazed terra cotta pots and lawn ornaments outside, and lots of fun houseware stuff inside. They just so happened to have bee garden tiles... so of course I purchased one. I don't harbor any ill feelings towards my bees for stinging me.
In other exciting garden news, when I was poking around my beds this afternoon I noticed that my tomatos are flowering! Yay! I feel like a proud mama, my tomato plants that I grew from seed are growing up! Yes, I know I'm a dork....
Our baby birds have flown the nest... but now we have snakes...don't tell Zeke.
Deer print..in my herb garden. Luckily she didn't eat anything, but I think it's time to put a plan in action. I just have to figure out what the plan is first.
