Gardens and Cakes

After acquiring some heavy duty gardening gloves over the weekend, I tackled the "garden" again. Isn't it pretty? Just kidding. Wish I had taken a "before" picture. See the dead grass in front of and the weeds in back of the plot? Just imagine the whole thing filled with those. That's what it looked like. Now it's time for some flowers.

After our yard work was done, Elise and I rewarded ourselves with some milk and strawberry-lemon cake. Elise used the two-handed, scarf it down method. I preferred a fork.

I'm not sure why all of a sudden most of my photos are out of focus. I suspect it has something to do with the fact that my husband no longer leaves the camera on the "Photography for Dummies" setting, the one that worked well for me. I can't blame him. We've had the camera long enough now that I should know how to adjust it. Okay, honey, I'm ready to learn. Let's just start with the basics - and remember that our definitions of "basics" are different.

I am looking forward to your flowers. Your girl is so sweet!
Still something wrong over there by me?
Isn't it irritating when the photos come out like that, I do the same only to look at the settings later. I often start a video when I wanted a photo.

That looks like good progress you're making on the garden. I once upon a time had a raised bed. It was pre-children at our old house and I don't know if I'll ever have the time again! Maybe when the kids are older and can do someof the work with me. :o)
