Sprung into Summer ...
Barely has it felt like Spring but suddenly it feels like Summer,
The too many flower beds were in desperate need of work.
Perhaps it was due to some galavanting around Italy last Fall and not
properly putting things to bed?
The "before" is in the wheelbarrow. Forgot to take a picture - oops.
More "after" of this
front corner rail fence bed.
Things are popping up nicely
even though it seems
ever so late this year.
I think we have too many flower beds!
This time I remembered to take a before picture of this side of the rail fence.
Do you see what I mean about them being in really bad shape?
Awww - that looks a bit better.
Except for the bunny chewed
Canada 150 tulips.
They must have tasted better than
the other ones?
I don't think we'll be seeing any red and white blooms this year.
Mulched with the farmer's help and ready to enjoy!
Front Flower beds - after weeding.
Patio and Herb beds at the back of the house.
I do enjoy gardening but there may be a few too many beds
for this old gal to keep up with?
I had a sweet helper for one of the days ....
Next will be the vegetable garden ... it's just a tad too early
but the rhubarb is giving a nice show so far.
Some has been picked and is ready to be made into muffins and a fresh pie for Mother's Day.
I was thankful to have this sauna on our back deck this week.
It seemed to help these old aching muscles.
Did I mention that I think we have too many flower beds?
I really can't complain - it is rewarding and good for me.
Till next time .... enjoying these blessed days and the privilege of gardening on this old farm!!!
