The Great Outdoors


Sunday afternoon was all about being outdoors. I got some onions, lettuce (more seeds that aren't pictured here), and carrots in the ground.  Poesy was happy to dig in the dirt while I sat next to her and potted pole beans, sweet peas, snap peas, squash, cucumbers tomatoes, basil, and some chamomile.  The weather was gorgeous and perfect for all the outdoor chores I've been meaning to make time for.  At the end of the night, we sat our tired bodies outside on the porch swing and watched the rainstorm.  I never would've imagined being so into these sorts of hobbies as a younger version of myself, but digging around in the dirt is a favorite these days.

The sunroom (pictured above) is a space in my home that I haven't shared on the blog yet (at least, I don't think).  These photos were taken before I spent a good bit of time getting it cleaned out yesterday.  I'm hoping to fill it with all kinds of plants and happy things.  Wouldn't this be such a nice little space to sit and read a book or have some quiet time?  I can dig it.

  4. Oh, I would love to have a sun room! I love gardens, but I have a hard time committing the actual gardening. I'm determined this year, though, because I have awesome patio furniture and sitting outside will be so much more fun if I have some greenery! It looks like you will have a wonderful garden before long!

  11. Cute little sunroom! You can totally style it French Cottage Chic. I think it's really great that you're getting your daughters into these hobbies at such a young age. Well done!

  17. I always love your gardening posts! I can't wait to see how they grow - and I love your little porch swing. I'd love to have a little summerhouse type thing in our back yard where we could just sit indoors in the rain and read a book.
    Have a lovely weekend!

  19. Look at you go! I admire people who start seeds (because I tried once and utterly failed). Someday I'll give it a go again. Your gardening and sun room plans sound very exciting! Best luck!
