Coastal Nest Gardens...kinda...

Hello there! Wanna come outside with me?
Okay...its a little cool this morning, but eh..if you live in the great Northwest, fuggetaboudit..
your use to it by now..
This here is my yard..
for the birds...


for the lady of the house, me..my fave, a good old fashion bleeding heart..




then theres another love..helleborous..Hmmm, did I spell that right? Also the ever fabulous and always showy hosta, which we have quite a few varieties...so EASY to grow, especially since they are so prolific around here with all our ""moisture and shade..""
OY... the SLUGS LOVE EM..
that's so not such a great thing, but..slugs..give em a little salt
they will be slime quicker than you can whistle your favorite tune..
I know, don't hate me..i kill a slug now and then...so not PC of me, eh?
(bwaaa ha ha ha ha)

If I didn't, these here little nubs of glory would just be...nubs eaten by slugs..

Ill be out here today..
Ive got a mulch pile calling my name....


and theres nothing my little green friends like more than


DA mulch..



stop by if your in the area..


maybe I have a shovel or a spade for ya..
and after that, who knows..
Its the weekend, peeps..
can you dig it??

PROMISE

How pretty Lisa....Hey...thought of you when going over this website. You should check it out. Using it to search for a beach cottage for my son and his family in Virginia Beach. Let me know what you think...I mean...perhaps using it to rent your lovely beach cottage?
