Finally! The last day of school has come and I am looking forward to working 2 weeks with no phones, visitors, children, etc. I have nothing against the children, it's just nice to work a while without being interrupted. The last days of a school are so stressful, the calm is almost surreal!
The garden is just so-so this year. Everything is different. Each plant is pretty, but I swear I can never get everything to be where they will be their best. I am going to concentrate this year on getting all the holes filled. That might take more than a year, but I can give it a good start. The lilies do very well in my shady garden, so I need lots of them. Plus, this time of year they're one of the few things I have blooming. I had a beautiful purple Clematis that bloomed so heavily, but the last few years it hasn't bloomed at all. It bloomed well when I had it on a tall trellis. I just realized that I replaced that trellis with a very short one and am thinking I need to get it up high again, as the light is much better.
I am making wonderful progress on the Christmas at Hawk Run Hollow project. The stitching is relaxing and each square is so fun. June's square is pretty heavily stitched, so I was glad that May's was finished early allowing me to get a good head start on June.
I hope you're having success with your Spring plans! Thanks so much for stopping by!
