Diana from Sweet Sparrow Design is here to tell you all about real country living! Wait until you see all the gorgeous pictures.
I love living in the country and have all my life.
This is a shot taken out by back door. What do you think of my new planter that we made this year? It has its own special story!
Gardening just seems to be a part of living in the country. My husband and I both enjoy it. He loves planting and I love reaping the benefits of it. It does become tedious at times especially when we over do it with the planting. It is so hard for us to see produce go to waste so we often end up picking a lot extra and giving it away or asking others if they would like to come and pick their own.
Right now we are in the picking season for Saskatoon berries. (Also called Serviceberry or June berry in the U. S.) This is one of the things we have overdone with planting. I was out picking on the weekend, yesterday and today! To top that off we are in a heat wave here in south central Canada.
Here I am au natural, going out to pick. I had a little fun with the camera. I wish I was more photogenic. Ask anyone that has tried to get a picture of me. It is seldom that I have a natural smile. It is also pretty hard to take a nice photo of yourself.
Gardening, country living and all that comes with it is a huge part of the lives of my daughter and I, and therefore it is often hard to take time to work in our Sweet Sparrow Design shop during the busy time of summer. Feel free to take a look at the variety of items in our shop below featuring eco-friendly products and accessories for Mom, baby and home! Of course we would love for you to stop by our shop or Facebook and leave a comment!
