Easter, A Rainbow and a New Garden

Been busy the last few days. No paper crafting... :(

However, hope that you had a wonderful Easter. We had family over. I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to have our Easter Egg hunt this year, as the weather kept calling for rain. I decided to take a chance and hid 76 eggs all around my yard. The weather turned out gorgeous. Just about everyone came out for the hunt. Here are two of the girls hunting for eggs...

Of course, my middle son, Jason, who really wanted to join in the hunt, had to work. (Maybe I should make a special hunt for him. What do you think?) I had told you a while ago that we usually end up not being able to find a few eggs and that I had started to make a map, just so we could then find them easier. Well, I did make the map, and true to form, we were missing one egg. Even with the map, we had some trouble. I finally found it. Kept everyone busy in the The rain did come (a little) and with it brought a beautiful rainbow...

You could see it from end to end. So, so pretty! 

The last two days, I have been busy with work and making a new garden. On Monday, Joe (my husband) and Jason built the structure (I designed it and mostly supervised on this back was really hurting) and yesterday, Jason and I went and got the soil. I then planted some tomato plants. What do you think?

(Not sure if you can tell, but the front is actually two gates that open up)

I bought some other vegetables (peppers, eggplant, cucumbers, and sting beans) but haven't planted them in the other garden yet. 

I'm hoping to clean up my craft area a little this morning, while waiting for the repairman for my brand new dishwasher to show up. (Not even two months old). Also have to continue to work on Jason's bedroom...we're planning to paint and get a new rug. It's just never Maybe tonight I'll get the chance to actually make a card...we'll see. There's always tomorrow...hahaha.

Have a great day...
imagine what you could do...

Note: I'll be without a dishwasher for at least a week...needs a new control panel! Sometimes I hate computer technology!


  1. Looked like a fun day, Dana! That's a great garden fence - sure to keep the critters out. We can hardly plant flowers because the bunnies, deer or something will eat them, so I can't imagine planting vegetables. Hope you get lots of tomatoes!--Pat N.

  2. Easter Egg Hunts are so much fun! We hosted our church's hunt this year, the day was very chilly and cloudy and wet from rain during the night so not a great turnout this year. Those that came had a good time and left with loads of candy.

    Like your garden design. It's so nice to get fresh vegtables that you grow yourself.

  3. What great photos, Dana! The rainbow is absolutely gorgeous!! I'm glad that you were able to get your hunt in before the rain came.
    Your garden looks great, too. It's too early to plant here yet. I hope your back is feeling better!

  4. Beautiful rainbow. I just moved from Hawaii, so I miss seeing them! Great photos!
