Oh, the joys of staying home all day long on a Saturday! Yesterday, I decided to work in the yard during the morning and save housework for the afternoon. The day flew by and I was still outside at 7:00 P.M.! I only went inside to move laundry from the washer to the dryer and to hang out one load of clothes. I had to run to the clothesline to get the clothes in when a brief rain shower started.
At one point of the day I was greeted at the door by this puppy. I put him in our old dog/goat crate for fear she would get run over. She was so sweet, but thank goodness we found out that she belonged to a neighbor down the road and took her home ASAP!
I spent time in some of these areas of our yard.
The shade garden:
Vinca Vines, Pansies and a wall pot:
Some tomatoes Hubby has growing in pots:
The progress in the raised bed:
Some new plantings:
A new garden flag beside one of my favorite plants, a yellow Sedum:
Two clematis vines growing amazingly fast:
Geraniums, all in a row:
Around the bottom of the mailbox:
Next week is a three day weekend and I have plans for one more area of the yard that needs attention. Hopefully the work week will go by quickly!
