For three days straight I've been outside, working in the garden. Planting a new bed, adding annuals and a couple new perennials, and finally mulching yesterday. Thankfully, I didn't do it alone! I'm not one for heavy lifting or digging really deep holes (how many Volkswagen sized rocks can there be in one yard???).

Now, come Monday (where is my Jimmy Buffet CD?) the yard work is done for the spring, except for the usual watering and upkeep. I'm crossing fingers that we won't get a late frost (our frost-free date is Mother's Day) and that the bunnies won't be so hungry they start munching on the new plantings.

If only I could get the dirt out from under my fingernails... Yuck.

Anyone else gardening yet?

  1. I wish I could garden. I love the result. But the work to get it...not so much.

    I think I could, though, if you could plant in cool weather. Not cold, just cool.

    Here in MO we've gone from winter to summer with no spring in between. Yikes!
