This spring has been very rainy in our neck of the woods. So on any day that promises even the least amount of sun, and we have the time, we have been outside working on our yard. I'm so excited about how awesome our yard looks right now. It's not the neglected mess it's been some years. I'm hoping we can stay on top of it all summer. Ha!
here (this was when we thought we could do it ourselves. Ha!). After we hired professionals to remove the rest of it, we replanted the hedge. Okay, I replanted the hedge which you can read about here.
The bed right by the clothesline is always the easiest to deal with because it just requires weeding and edging to look 1000% better.
Since it only takes me about half an hour to do, it gives me a huge sense of accomplishment! It also looks better when there's laundry hanging on the line in front of it. Ha!
This is just a random picture of Rachel and I after we had biked to our local garden centre with twenty more plants. For those keeping track, that's only 68 plants this year which might be a record for the lowest number of plants I've ever bought. And no, I'm not counting the 24 pansies I bought for our window boxes in April. Ha!
So if anyone stuck around until the end, I'm now done. I love doing all this yard work every year and sitting and enjoying the fruits of our labours. Working on our yard gives me so much energy and makes me so happy!
