Mother’s Day brought a new white hydrangea to the cottage. We’re in the middle of a building project, a front yard garden. We’re the kind of DIYers who began in the late fall in baby steps. We bought wood at a reclaimed lumber sale. I fell in love with a country fence enroute to a friend’s home. Sturdy, but still pretty with a purpose.
We laid out the 4×4 posts back in January before we remembered that the snow would hit that week.
I’m sure our country neighbors drive by and shake their heads at the Berrys, but small steps gets it done …eventually.
The posts are in the ground, and the holiday in May has now brought reason to plant something beautiful in the front corner of the cottage yard. Last spring’s hosta plants survived my planting them AND they came back!
Small steps. Tiny steps. But steps forward all the same. Today’s hooray was getting my Mother’s Day hydrangea planted!

Oh! I love that fence! So glad those hostas survived. And hydrangea? They are loved in any color…can’t wait to see it flourish and bloom.
