Random Things Happening Behind the Scenes at Bricks ‘n Blooms

It was another gorgeous week here in New Jersey! Hot but beautiful.

And since it didn’t rain much, now that it is the holiday weekend, we are getting DAYS of rain.

Which is good for the gardens, but not so much for the holiday weekend!

Isn’t this obelisk beautiful? It’s another great find from H Potter. I’m looking to tuck a few more flowers in here later this week but it’s already looking so pretty with my siberian iris, climbing roses and passionflower.

The gardens look so pretty now that more of my flowers are starting to bloom.

I’ll be sharing a garden tour later this week.

Wait until you see some of these flowers!

The attic renovation is chugging along. It’s fully painted, doorknobs were added and electric came back to finish.

The rug will be getting installed after Memorial Day.

And then it’s all about getting my office set up.

We spent some time at the lake this weekend before the rain settled in over the area.

I’m so glad we got one good lake day on the boat.

We even had a little lake adventure while we were out.

It was a quiet day with very few boats on the water.

When we came upon a boat that was shipwrecked ashore.

Their boat engine died and they got stuck on the rocks.

So we towed them in.

What’s Happening at Bricks ‘n Blooms

It was a busy week for the blog. We did lots of fun things here this week on the blog.

With the holiday weekend upon us, I shared how to care for the gardens both inside and outside your home.

Keep your plants and flowers alive with THESE tips.

My virtual supper club got together to celebrate summer with a fun themed dinner party.

I shared some summer table decor and dinner party ideas HERE.

For this month’s theme, I was in charge of the side dish.

Summer Dinner Party Ideas

And it’s a good one because you can make it with fresh veggies from the garden or your local farm stand.

You can check out the full summer dinner party menu HERE.

We also shared a fun short video for our virtual supper club. If you’ve not met my virtual supper club before, click play on the video below.

Do you remember I told you I guested on a podcast last week?

My friend Caylie from the Life and Style Podcast and I chatted about the joys of gardening, DIY projects, blogging, and more!

It looks fabulous and you have inspired me to get the ball rolling on mine. I don’t have to do nearly as much to it though. Thank you for the blog post share. So appreciate it. Have a great week!

    1. Thank you so much for listening! It was such a fun experience. The attic is really coming along! We got the carpet down and now I’m looking at how to furnish the office. I’m so excited to watch your redo too! xo
