2 announcements, actually!
While other people whose blogs I follow are making announcements like being pregnant, moving, and starting their own businesses, mine aren’t quite like that… Not quite at all… But they are life changing (for me), and the first one impacts my readers greatly 🙂
Announcement #1: I got the internet! I realize it seems especially strange that someone who writes a (semi) consistent food blog has just gotten the internet at her house for the first time ever. And I’ve lived here for 4 years. Wow. Yup, I’ve been writing my blog at either my parents’ house or Starbucks allllll this time. But no more! And guess what’s really exciting about that for all of us? That means more posts! Yay! I don’t have to block off time in my week to go seek out the internet and leave poor Cupcake home alone while I write posts of pure culinary genius! (haha!)
Announcement #2 is WWWWAAAAYYYYYY too exciting to write at the beginning of this post, so I’m going to write it at the verrrrryyyyyy end to build great suspense (although, I’m sure by the time you get down there you’ll have forgotten there even was an announcement #2… unless you’re about to skip everything and scroll to the bottom… in which case, *tsk tsk*).
I must now share some lovely pictures of my beautiful garden:
That is my absolutely beautiful border of daylilies all in bloom. They have just gotten so big and beautiful! Next year I will separate even more of them and plant them along more of the garden bed. Eventually my entire backyard will be bordered in these beauties!
Standing a bit closer to the pond and waterfalls, you can see the roses, verbena, butterfly bushes, butterfly weed, hostas, elephant ear… There’s a lot of stuff planted up there.
Here is a close-up of the glass lanterns hanging in that tree… They’re pretty inconspicuous from that other angle. Also, a close-up of the bird feeder with a starling landing on it.
I had to hack down my butterfly bushes after they grew to be about 8 feet tall and blocked the view of all of the hibiscus flowers behind them! I cut off a bunch of the flowers and put them in 2 vases. They look so nice and they smell like pure honey. I still have the bushes on the hill, I just chopped them down to be about 3 ft high instead.
And of course, what’s a Pescetarian and the Pig post without this beautiful little gem? She got herself all dirty rolling around in the yard and pushing that snout through the flowerbed. She has grown a bit bulbous since the winter, since she literally eats everything in sight… Cupcake is the best!
And now… announcement #2….
I GOT 2ND ROW TICKETS TO SEE GOTYE IN RALEIGH IN OCTOBER!!!
I don’t know if you can truly fathom how excited I am about this! Now all I need are backstage passes… So seriously… if anyone knows anyone… totally hook me up. It would be legendary.
