June Blog Train and Fan Freebie

 It took almost a month, but I finally got internet service again.  Comes in handy, but I found that I really didn't miss it all that much either after the first week.  We got so much done around here while we were "unwired".  Spring roundup went off without a hitch, our Veterinary spent a day here to give each horse its annual checkup and that all turned out good, too.  Looks like we're going to have a really good summer!  And, I have a much better internet system in place now for house and shop.

I don't usually do this, but I really have to.  I got a catalog from Bluestone Perennials earlier this year and had to give their plants a try.  They send live plants in biodegradable pots that you just plant the whole thing.  They're packaged in such a way, that UPS can't destroy them in route, and they look like plants you have just picked up at a greenhouse and brought them home. Within a couple days, they were already growing, and a few of them had already started flowering.  I am so impressed with this company, I wanted to share it with you.  If you're into gardening, be sure to check them out.

The Boo Update --

When I can't find Boo, I usually find him here between the ferns and palm plant.  He feels right at home with the "Garden Cats" I painted hanging by the front door.  I'll soon be adding a chair in this area that I'm refinishing and reupholstering.  Never reupholstered furniture before, so it should be an adventure!  I just keep telling myself -- "I can do this!"

See ya next month!
