It is blooming!

My blackberry bush is flowering.  I am so excited!  My husband's parents gave us this bush last April.  We were embarking into unknown territory given that we had never planted any type of food before.  I quickly read up on some successful planting tips and we were on our way.  I am glad I did because it informed me that blackberry bushes do not yield for one year.  It grew a lot from April to October.  We forgot to fertilize before winter came so hopes were low, but it took off growing once again and started to flower. Hopes are back up! I want to get a blueberry bush too now.

down by the bay: easter 2011

where the watermelons grow...

The pups had a blast and Lola was a mess.  She was not happy about the bath at the end of the weekend. We always enjoy taking the short drive to the bay to see family. And of course have some fun!

First Cookout of the Year

Since it was going to be beautiful Sunday we decided to have a cookout for my birthday instead of going out to dinner.  Such a great decision!  It was so fun to have people over to sit outside and just chat. All while eating yummy cookout type food of course. Can't wait until it actually stays warm and we can do this all the time.
