It's a jungle out there.

Thank you Lord for springtime.      
OMG I've been so busy outside. I so need to catch up on my friends blog, I don't want to miss any beautiful posts, so this Sunday I will spend the day, well the afternoon visiting blogs.
For most of last week, I've been working on the garden non stop, not there yet. The weather down here is still not too hot and I can still get somethings done. We're planning on having a truck full of mulch delivered very soon and I'm so looking forward to that final little touch. I leave you with some pictures of our back yard. This is my style of gardening, al jungle. I'm so bad a t cutting things back.

In the garden.

My favorite place to be. This week I've been top dressing all my plants. My general garden is pretty much established already and most of my plants are in the ground, and I love it that way. I do have a few containers, but most of it is in the ground.  They do require some yearly TLC. As soon as it get a bit warmer,  which will be very soon down here, I will be fertilizing.
So far I'm loving my vegetable and herb garden, doing really well. Planning on planting 3 or 4 more packets of Basil seeds, so want to make pesto this year. I can't complain, it's been an unusual long and cool winter down here and if you live in south Florida you know what I mean. Thank you Lord.   

I'm in the garden/ 

                                     I use what ever I can to create a little shade for the babies.

Vintage ironing board.

I've been wanting a vintage ironing board for a very long time. Well, my sister found one for me and I'm in love with it. The legs are solid iron and the top is wood, so very strong. I made this cute little over for it. I love the fabric pattern and the color is my new favorite color. This cover can easily be removed for when I need to tuck a sleeve or something through. I can't seam to fold it and store it away, love looking at it.
