Gardens, Dogs and Little Red Wagons




















Hello friends!  Well, it's been a minute. Life has certainly changed in the last few months. I wish I had kept up with blogging, but I'm hoping to become a little more regular. I spend most of my social media time over on Instagram where I post almost daily @thelongawaitedhome.

 Brian and I have been staying home as much as possible. He must go to his job at the USPS everyday, and I did remote learning as a teaching assistant until school ended, but now I'm home all the time. I have been spending long days in the gardens and there is absolutely no where else I'd rather be these days. The pups are getting so used to me being home, they have anxiety anytime I need to go out without them. They have been my buddies throughout the quarantine, and we spend long days outside together. Our gardens have never looked better, and I really am relishing the endless time I have to tend to them. 

 I recently partnered with Radio Flyer and I have been using my All Terrain Steel & Wood Radio Flyer Wagon everyday. It is strong and sturdy and I drag it everywhere, from across the lawn to up and over the perennial beds. I carry plants and gardening tools (and some dog treats too).  I love the style and sense of nostalgia this wagon brings to my gardening days. It really is delightful to have fun and useful tools to use. I love this wagon and highly recommend it! If you'd like to purchase your own wagon, click on the link below. 

This is a sponsored post. I have partnered with Radio Flyer Inc.

    I am new to your blog, and have been enjoying the many good reads in your archives . . . I love your writing style, and your beautiful photos. So, I was thrilled to see a new blog today! The photos are so rich with color - - kudos to the photographer! We recently had our landscaping refreshed, so we, too, are diligently watering and pulling even a hint of a weed. It's been almost unbearably hot and dry here in southeastern PA, but we're trying to do our best! I've been out of work (retail sales at a local small business, primitive/country style home decorating shop) since mid-March, so I'm really loving being home for a change - - and staying safe, too! Blessings to you and your husband and your fluffy pups!

    1. Hi Patti! I sure has been hot this summer and that makes working in the garden difficult. The older I get, the less I can take the heat. I can't get ahead of the weeds, but I've come to accept the fact that like laundry, you will never truly be caught up with the weeds. It's funny how I often focus more on the weeds than on the beautiful flowers and I should flip that way of thinking - in everything really!

    1. We have some raised beds where we have tomatoes, peppers and herbs. I have never been good at growing vegetables, but next spring I'm going to try again. We have a very generous neighbor who loves to share her excess produce with us, and she has an amazing vegetable garden.
      Warmly, Gloria
