Just Been Gardening and Renovating.

 We have been home two months and we have spent all our time working. I'm not complaining because most my work has been in the garden. Although it's been a cool spring, we didn't have any frost or snow since we got home in the middle of March. Perfect growing weather for a most plants including weeds.
A lot of plants are late blooming, a few didn't make it through the winter, including a big clematis that used to cover one side deck. I cut most of it back hopefully it will leaf out this year and bloom next year.

Jake kept burying himself in the clematis trimmings

The kitchen reno is coming along, Skip still has to make the cupboard doors, and build a new island, but
what a difference already

Like everyone else we have been disappointed with the spring weather, makes us really appreciate getting away last winter.



  1. Great looking gardens guys. I see we have similar tastes in landscaping but I think you can probably grow more neat-o stuff in your climate than we can. Kitchen renos are looking good & I can see we have some similarities there too. Keep on pluggin:))

  2. nice landscaping you have! shot of your dog rolling around on his back!!

  3. LOVE the kitchen ! The colour, the pine, the window, the cupboards... Skip is a talented guy..
    what is the floor?

    and the yard....wonderful, inviting and lush !
    right up are alley !
    Thinking you guys would really miss your home..
    so nice to see your doggies enjoying their freedom as well....
    thanks for posting pics and update..

  4. Hi Kelly, the floor is Allure vinyl, like we put in the rv.We would miss our home if we decide to sell, it's a tough decsion.

  5. Too bad about the clematis. I bet it looks so pretty when it blooms.

    Your kitchen looks great!

    I love a lush garden, very appealing. Lots of work but well worth it.
