Today has been a wonderful day weather wise. Simply beautiful....70, sunny and somewhat windy. The hubs and I had decided earlier in the week to take the day to work in the yard. We are really behind on working in the yard this Spring because of the hub's school, but he finished Friday and has eight weeks off before his next class.
First, I headed off to WalMart to buy some potting soil and plants for the garden. Unfortunately, the weather is still a wee bit chilly at night (we discovered when looking at the forecast) so my plan to plant a little today went by the wayside. Instead, my plants are now residing in my master bath...in the GARDEN tub (ironic, no?!?).
We spent about four hours weeding, cleaning and raking leaves. For sure, there is still much to do, but what I love about working in the yard is that even in a half a day, you can see so much progress. Here's a peek at the back yard:
Our peonies also are in bloom. Here is a beautiful one I picked and put in our kitchen window to enjoy.
Other than that, it's been a regular weekend....chores, errands, etc. Roxie wishes to tell all of you, "HELLO!" So, here she is:
