It is! Despite having taken out the lawn, I think it's going to be very lush and green.

Today I transplanted some more Sempervivum (Hen and Chicks) and Sedum (Stonecrop) varieties from a neighbour as well as a periwinkle from the back yard and the last potted sedum we brought home from the garden centre. The periwinkle is not native and can be aggressive and invasive but it's well contained in the rocky patch that is our yard, it happens to love being planted in rocks too. It sends out creepers with shallow roots and will spread and cover lots of space. I have one more small pot of Hen and Chicks to find a spot for.

Here is the front of the house from two angles. I am quite pleased with all this, it's the first time I've ever done any decorative planting.

The grasses and those low bunches of green (black eyed susan and echinacea) will grow really tall and leave seeds heads for the birds all winter.

And I put the houseplants out onto the front porch. The loved this last year. I trimmed the Pothos but will have to do some more cutting back at the end of the season and give a few plants away, they are all getting too big to fit inside the house!

Because it's a stool with an x on it.  Actually it's what holds the stool together.  I saw this on instructibles recently, but I changed it a little.  The original stool was a hexagon, and I couldn't imagine how that was going to be comfortable to sit on, so I made it round.  Then I put a cushion on it. Total comfort and portable, too

That's a good one craftylittlemonkey! Very similar stylewise to the Tarzan one in the other riddle cards I made:

Aren't blank mint tins great? They are one of my favorite things to craft because of the countless ways to transform them. This tin has a chipboard facade from Alpha Stamps glued to the front to make a wee house. (I just added siding and shutters.)

The table and chair are made from wire and buttons; one button for the table top, one for the back of the chair, and a fabric button for the seat. I spray painted them white and used acrylic paint to add a pattern on the back of the chair as well as the shutters. Those shutters had been in the stash forever so it was nice to finally have the perfect place for them. There is a shelf inside to hold a few things, and two floral-y lamps made from chipboard shapes. The next tin needs to be a haunted house just to balance out all this pink.

I also received a card from craftylittlemonkey, and it is hilarious! The card had me giggling already, but her titles for it just sent me over the edge.

"The Pressure of Perfection" or "A Recipe For Disaster" or my favorite, "Cookin' Something Up in Mama's Kitchen"  Cheesy

It's too great. Thank you!

Spring vegetables are finally here!  I made a roasted vegetable medley with balsamic dressing for dinner tonight.

My inspiration came from harvesting these beautiful kohlrabi, carrots and beets this morning.

Rather than peeling the beets, I drizzled them with a little olive oil and wrapped them in foil.

After about 40 minutes in the oven at 350F the skins slide right off.  Super easy!

I sliced the carrots and peeled kohlrabi and tossed them with a few sliced garlic cloves, a little olive oil and a splash of balsamic vinegar.  They were roasted along side the beets.

To finish, I sprinkled on blue cheese and made a dressing of 3T. Olive oil, 3T. Balsamic vinegar and 1T. Dijon mustard.
