Amazed at what I've been able to pick from my garden already. :)
We went to the Bangor State Fair on opening night. I was surprised that it wasn't that busy. I also found out I can't stomach rides very well. Oh well I still had fun with Peter and Peyton. 










It was a great week for my family. My niece was born late Tuesday night. :)

She's so adorable!! So happy for my sister and her husband.

I took a quick trip down to Belfast and Lincolnville Beach today. 



There was an art and craft show on the waterfront in Belfast. 

I stopped at Lincolnville Beach and collected shells on the beach.

More progress on patio area.  Just want to get it done. I paid the delivery fee to get pavers and sand delivered due to the weight. Each paver is 33lbs and I ordered thirty six  of them with ten 50lb bags of sand too. After it is all in place I'll order the crushed stone and it will be done. :)


Made me laugh

My garden currently. I already am planning next year. Using the fish emulsion has definitely helped the growth.

Today I went for a road trip and visited the Saint Croix Island International Historic Site that is near Calais, Maine. It was a beautiful spot to visit.

I've been making progress on the patio area. I added some bricks around where I planted the forthsyia bushes. I think I'll finish adding bricks on the other side too. 


I am happy I got new pillows from my mom that I can use outside. I also scored a $3 peony plant from Lowes today that was on clearance.

Here is the before and after around the future patio area. I'm tired from shoveling and pulling weeds. 


I also finished installing a fence around my vegetable garden. Let's hope no more animals are sampling my veggies. 


I'm proud of the little door I made. 


Also my clematis is flowering. Yay. :)

I could have spent my day off getting caught up on Games of Thrones though majority of it was spent doing that. My car was at the mechanic for inspection and tires so I decided to be somewhat productive around the house. 
I'm trying to transplant grass so hopefully I can push back that nasty weed that grows around my yard. 


I'm trying to level the yard by the porch. It actually looks somewhat better. Eventually I'll be able to put grass seed down. 

And another marble found in the yard. :)

Wish I had a before picture. Got old lilac bush stump removed. Note said only took 30 seconds so he charged me $30 instead of $75. Now to fill in the hole!

I did some plant shopping and worked on my garden today. 



My wall of peonies, all different colors. I have 5 now. :)




My blueberry bushes that I had to move.
