Around back, I planted some basil in a pot, as well as planted several plants in my large square pot. Both of these pots will eventually reside on the deck, but Chris is in the process of power-washing the deck ahead of staining it if we can string together a few nice days for drying. The basil and the plants for the square pot were also purchased at Sammis'. The plants in the square pot are rosemary, another dwarf coleus, some wave petunias, and calibrachoa. Again, the idea for this pot came from Lowe's Creative Ideas magazine. Subscriptions are free, so if you don't get it, you should!

|Mmm, basil...and my big square pot for the deck.|
A few other items of note "around the Homestead" from the past weekend:
|Some "bunny" came by for a visit...|
|...and then hung out in the front garden among the foxglove.|
|Stewart the Bullfrog continues to enjoy live in our pond...|
|...and may, upon further inspection, be a girl. A girl named Stewart!|
|Our "left-most" bird box has BLUEBIRDS! |
Here, Momma Bluebird sits on the nest of two babies.
|The grapevine our friend Clay sent us last year is growing! Homestead vino, anyone?!?|
