Our New Babies

August 29, 2011 at 5:48 AM 5 comments

Did I get your attention with the post title?  Not those type of babies.  These babies…

Two Spanish Lavender plants which we had to transport home very safely.  Buckle up!

We brought them home and got to planting on our new deck.

We also planted kale, spinach, green onions, brocoli, arugula and gardenia.  We shall see how they do.  This is our first attempt at a garden.

We’re not quite sure if our little babies will survive the harsh winds when the fog rolls in, but we shall see.  Graham also got a baby all of his own this weekend…

A BBQ.  Ahh…so much fun to grill, minus the cold August weather.  For our Sunday evening grill, this is what I wore…

Nothing like sporting a puffy jacket and babushka hat in August.  Graham toughed it out though.

Happy Monday!

    love the babies!! and the arugula and and and. . . the pots and wooden ‘trough’ planters look great; i think you’ll have a huge salad in no time (maybe 30 days!) just having that bit of outdoor space is miraculous, green is good.

    Oh I bet your car smelled lovely after transporting the lavender! I hope your garden grows well and that the weather holds out to allow you both to the grill and deck! Happy Monday, Kate!
