This past week my husband and I went to the Farmer's Market in our town. It was such a beautiful morning. I finally woke up early to enjoy the first day of the Farmer's Market for this year. I loved it! We had such a fun date trying cheese, shopping for vegetables and looking at home made crafts. The home made crafts were very cool. Take a look at those bird houses!
Souwan and I also got to see a car show in town. I'll admit that I do not know anything about cars. These cars were really neat and nostalgic. I know my mom used to tell me about the drive in movies with the speaker boxes on the cars. It was exciting to see one. We enjoyed some karoke and kabobs from this food truck at the car show too.
My flower bed has changed so much. Our gladiolus flowers are starting to come up.
I'm not sure what this flower is. It resembles a pansy, but they are much taller. They are blooming in our flower bed. My husband got them for sale at Lowe's for $1 each.
My lilies are slowly coming up. These are from Lowe's too. I got them as bulbs in a bag for $8. These were not on sale.
These azaleas have really bloomed since we got them in March! I love the pinks (my favorite color). Souwan got these on sale at Lowe's.
Our hostas are huge. I underestimated the width of these hostas. We planted flowers near them not knowing how big they would get. Souwan said we may need to move some plants/flowers around in the bed. Three weeks ago they were just starting to come up.
My brother, mom and Souwan went to our local garden store to get vegetables. Souwan and I are trying our green thumb.
My brother and dad's birthday was this week. We took my brother out to eat at a Thai restaurant. It was a great time and very good food. I want another seafood salad now! Happy Birthday to the best brother and best friend a girl could have. And, i'll stop here before embarrassing him.
I'll be celebrating with my dad for his birthday later on. I just wanted to give him a shout out! I love ya! He owes me some basketball games, some yard/house work and some vegetables from his garden. But seriously he is awesome and I am grateful for helping guide me to be who I am today, Happy Birthday daddy!
Our small vegetable garden is finished (for now). I have planted almost everything. I have a handful of plants still left to put into another bed. This one is complete! First, I laid out all the plants in the bed to map it out. I have no reason for doing it this way other than my need for organization. After, I planted all the plants and watered them.
