Summertime. Summertime. Sum-Sum-Summertime.

Absolutely beautiful! That about sums up this past weekend. The weather was just unbelievably perfect. Everyone was in high spirits. And needless to say, the beaches were packed! Nonetheless, we ventured out to Wrightsville Beach with some friends at about 10:30am and didn't get home until 12 hours later. Our day consisted of a lot of people watching, our first sunburns of the year, and a bucket full of steamed oysters. It really doesn't get any better.

When Sunday rolled around, we were beach-bummed out. So Joe & I got to planting. We're not known for our green thumbs at all. Even though we've got two very healthy bamboo stalks that have lasted 4 years. (Holla?!) But we figured that maybe our fifth try around (yes, we've been together for five summers now!) would be the charm. Here's hoping!

Joe with our tomato plant and assortment of herbs.

Gerber Daisies. How sweet.

Pansies. Cheap and easy. But beautiful.
You have to have a Hibiscus when you live on Hibiscus Way!

truth be told, i'm terribly jealous that you live so close to the beach, AND that you can spend 12 hours there uninterrupted...just not fair!! you're plants look great. i'm trying my thumb at a little gardening this year myself... "bucket gardening" (don't laugh). tomatoes and peppers...i'll be posting pics when i get them planted...get excited.
