Jimmy was away a couple weekends ago on the boy's golf trip and this gave me the perfect opportunity to relax and putter and around the house. I spend the majority of yesterday starting to pull together our backyard. One of the things I love about having a house, is the opportunity for backyard summer living. And although Calgary isn't known for the greatest of summers, the thought of enjoying a warm night outside makes it all worth it!

So I busily planted and fertilized, turned the soil and weeded. I hung lights and clocks. Pruned bushes and checked out my blooming iris. I smelled lilies of the valley and looked for the perfect spot for my peony. A peony - So excited about the peony that I bought on Friday! I guess I really am a married woman now if I get excited about a peony.

The only thing that we have left is to get a dining table and chairs and work a little more on the lighting situation. So stay tuned for a couple of pictures of where everything is at.

This post inspires me, Jules. Maybe not enough to actually do some gardening of my own, but definitely enough to develop my own domesticity!
