The day after...

my birthday and i'm sitting here wondering where i'm going to put my new soil that was my birthday present... i'm tickled pink that my kids thought of the greatest gift for a gardener :D was pretty fun to see the backhoe coming down the road, with 2 hanging baskets and a big red bow on top of the bucket of soil!!

after the soil was deposited my wonderful son-in-law went and attacked the blackberries that were overgrown down by my winter pond... ahhh all gone now... at least for this year.. am going to go to the feedstore later today and pick up some sort of seed to toss all over the bare ground... not sure what i can plant but thought maybe winter rye would be a good cover, or even clover..

had a sleep over with grandbaby last night... we both had a bath in Thyme epsom salts, then big oversized T-shirts a bowl of popcorn and Cats And Dogs movie.... was great fun!!
today we're going to go and pick berries.. the small creeping blackberries, saskatoon berries, raspberries, huckleberries and even a few left over strawberries.... this year seems to be a bumper year for the berries... "Lots of Berries, lots of Fish" was a common saying many years ago... now i'm afraid the lots of fish isn't :(

anyways.... i'm thinking that a berry cobbler sounds pretty darn good!!
