The rain stopped so I went out to play in the dirt ;)
This is how it looked like before I weeded.
I first had to weed the driveway part....in front of the cement blocks.
Looks like a mini jungle doesn't it?!
Looks better already.
And that is just from weeding outside of the flower bed, lol.
Look at all of those weeds.
I filled up this big bucket with weeds.
I also trimmed the shrubs.
The Dogwood was dead last year, looks like it came back to life :)
Now isn't that a lot prettier :)
I picked up another planter from the nursery.
I was going to plant my own, but it was actually less pricey to buy one already done!
Bonus, save money and my time ;)
I just love these flowers so bright and pretty :)
I picked up this stand where the planter just sits in the ring at the top once it is locked into place.
I made this sign years ago when I was big into woodworking and decorative painting.
I have one for each season.
Looks like it may need a redo though... but it has weathered quite well.
My SIL bought me this plain birdhouse.
It is made out of balsa wood, so not very weather resistant.
But I painted it and sealed it.
I loved this, as I painted it Debbie Mumm style...love her artwork.
I have to do some touch ups...or retire it.
Every year I have to glue it back together as the pieces separate....I guess I really should bring it in for the winter.
So that is what I did today.
Took care of another flower bed.
The rate I'm going they should all be in tip top shape just as winter rolls around, lol.
I needed to cut the lawn, with all of the rain we have been getting my lawn looks like a field.
I couldn't get the lawn mower started (this is an ongoing debate with my honey and I)
Later in the day a man comes to the door and asks me if I need help cutting my lawn.
I know he was looking for work...but how embarrassing that he knew to come to my house as the neighbours lawns are all nicely manicured.
When Wayne got home I made him start up the lawn mower for me, lol.
I hope you have a very creative day and get to enjoy the beautiful weather :)
