the weekend

meet goose. all 79lbs of him. also known as goosey. he is such a joy to have and my only child.

this weekend we worked in the yard. all weekend long. we worked in the yard to tidy it up for an upcoming to be talked about event. goosey took a trip with us to a cute little nursery right up the road from our home. i wanted to get some plants for a flower bed, to the side of our house, that we cleared. I love plants, but my yard gets full sun in the front, doesn't allow me to have the plants i love the most, like cast iron, ferns and camellias. I have been going back and forth as to what I can put in this side bed...thinking does it get too much sun? are low light plants going to burn? so i asked the nursery experts and they helped me. here are some before and after pictures of my little flower bed project.



i finally got a camellia! goosey is proud too, in case you couldn't tell.

we heart our new garden and hope you do too!


  1. I think Goose was guarding the camellia!!

    Lantana loves full sun and so do zinnias.

  2. good looking pupper dog :)
