New garden projects & the family hammock

We've been working on the side yard (former construction site while our straw bale addition to the house was being worked on), and have slowly started to map out what this new section of the property will look like - new keyhole garden beds, a large area to expand our lavender production, map out where another fruit tree or two can be planted, perhaps a new bicycle shed/wood shed for easier access, and a winding path of flagstone throughout, and a little patch of lawn (well, clover, grass and wildflower seeds interplanted) with just enough room to put down a picnic blanket, kids playing, and setting up a small tent for hot summer nights.  It's exciting to have this whole new area plot of land to dream about - little by little this property takes shape.

And, after the busy weekend, we spent some time relaxing in our favourite spot on the back porch, the family-sized hammock!
