Spring has Sprung: 2011 Edition

It’s been a busy spring for us. I had an epic Spring Break extravaganza in which I flew to San Francisco to complete some bridesmaid duties for my friend Jeanine then flew to DC to be in my friend Kristin’s wedding. I did a bunch of DIY stuff for Kristin’s wedding, and once the pictures are processed, I’ll get those up in a post.

Until then, I just wanted to share some pictures of a few recent random projects.

We got our spring garden in back in early March. We’re growing tomatoes, herbs, beans and peas, melons, greens, radishes, carrots, and some other things I’m forgetting right now. So far, the garden is growing great – we haven’t got much rain this spring, but our garden is on an automatic drip irrigation system. I wanted to share this cool picture of a volunteer tomato plant (one of many) that I found in our garden:

This winter, we had a Sun Gold Cherry Tomato plant that grew up from a dropped fruit. Now, the fruit that dropped from that plant is sprouting all over the garden bed. I went to pull out a few rouge sprouts and found this neat little science project under the ground.

After we put in the garden, I got inspired to revamp some planters that were on our front steps since we moved into the house. I painted our “logo” on ‘em – a tall, orange carrot representing Bug, and a round, red beet representing me. Then I found some great lilies that matched the images perfectly. Fun!

And one final piece of eye candy for you to feast on – Texas Shortcake with berries and whipped cream. Every good Texan needs a Texas shaped cookie cutter.
