Saturday was "work like you are Amish Day" at our house. While the fellas cleaned out the garage, I did some weeding in the flower beds and planted our garden. Sunday, I did a little more weeding and started powerwashing the back terrace until Army Son came for a visit. :) (Love it when those kids visit!)
Here is a before pic of my garden. Thank goodness I got everything planted before our 9 days of straight rain. Yup! That's what they are predicting!
This is the part where the waiting comes in. Everybody is planted, we are just waiting for a visit. I tried to blow this pic up so you could see the row of roses back there, but they are barely visible. They were in a janky (yes, that is my word) flower bed in the back when we first moved here. I tilled them up a row and figured I would transplant them and if they made it through the winter, fine. If they didn't, fine. Well, against all odds, they made it!
The other story for this one is kinda ironic. It is my Mom crowding out my Dad! LOL See the Coleus that has decided to spring up everywhere? My Mom gave me ONE plant last year. As soon as I planted it, the drought hit and I figured it was a gonner. Well, it is everywhere! As you can tell, this is the part of the flower bed I haven't gotten to weed yet!
Well, I can't wait to show you how everyone looks once they all start blooming and growing up tall for Momma.
