I had some surprise morning glories come up a week or so ago and realized I needed a trellis sooner rather than later. Instead of heading to the store to look around, I decided to see what we had in the shed that might work. I found several antique gardening tools that I thought might be kind of neat, so I propped them up all together and voila!
I thought my improvised trellis went well with the super old ladder I'm using as a plant stand on the other side of the front door:
And now, where I've been:
Weeding. And potty training. And having down time on the couch when I overdo it and my back can't take it.
Why weeding has taken over my life: We have a lot of perennial flower beds at our house. Like a lot. And with the recent lawn stuff that's been happening, I added even more (my dad thinks I'm crazy- he might be right). Regardless of my sanity, they're lovely and they really add to the cottage-y feel of the house:
That bed in front of the brick raised bed is a new one, that's why it's so sparse right now. Just give it a year and it'll fit right in.
I'll spare you pictures of the potty training process (I'm pretty sure I don't have any, anyway) as well as pictures of me laying on the couch looking super pregnant and pathetic. Speaking of pregnant- I'm 35 weeks now! Just a little over a month and I'll have a brand new little girl! I have a lot of sewing planned for her- mostly onsie dresses. We'll see if I actually get it done before I go into labor, though. I wouldn't bet on it.
Thanks for reading!
