Mother's Day Gift of Yard Work

Happy Mother's Day! Hope your day was special in some way.

All I wanted for Mother's Day was to have help with the yard work.  It was the first mowing and there were soooo many weeds to pull and plants to plant.  So, everyone pitched in and the work went fast.  Or maybe it was just easier for me. I don't mind doing the yard work, but the first few times are overwhelming.


I would rather be rearranging vignettes in my yard and enjoying those I created before.


On Saturday, I had visited the market on Pepper Road in Lake Barrington.  I especially loved the booth by Savvycityfarmer. http://savvycityfarmer.com/blog  Joy always has the most wonderful treasures and her displays are amazing.


I purchased a simple rosemary topiary for my yard.


There are some sales this week:  At 9am on Thursday is the Service League of Crystal Lake rummage sale at the Dole Mansion and at 3pm is a rummage sale at Grace Lutheran Church in Woodstock. Friday at 8am is a rummage sale at the church on Walkup in Crystal Lake.(I can't remember the name but if you go, it's closer to Crystal Springs Rd if you are heading towards McHenry.)  Saturday and Sunday is the Pecatonica Flea Market and on Sunday is the first Elkhorn WI flea market of the season.  Saturday at the Chicago Botanic Garden is the Proven Winners event with P. Allen Smith https://www.provenwinners.com/Outdoor-Living-Extravaganza-2016  I'm going to this.  I saw P. Allen Smith before and he is an amazing speaker.  He is so charismatic!  I can't wait.....

Happy treasure hunting!
