Weekend Project

A BIG weekend for yard work. With the weather perfect we tackled the backyard beds and they turned out so well. :) Jay even rented an areator for the yard, which he has been working so hard at this spring. You can definetly tell by how nice and full it looks. While he did that, I went and picked out all the plants and shrubs at a nearby nursery and by 5:30 Saturday evening we were finished. Suprisingly, after planting approx. 35 shrubs, unloading and spreading 8 forty pound bags of topsoil and compost, plus helping Jay with the mulch, I was not that sore.;)
As I was working Lane told me what a good job I was doing and that he thought it looked really nice. Such a Sweet boy!!! I think he was suprised to see Mommy using the post hole digger and moving big bags of dirt around. Now I am motivated to start working on our front beds....they still need a lot of dirt work though.

It's beautiful! You did a wonderful job! What a great space it looks like that room is! We need to do some major projects around here but not fun ones....

I love your screen room AND the flower/shrub beds. we bought some roses to go by our porch. But we have to wait a few weeks yet. (it's supposed to freeze/frost all next week)

Thanks for the very sweet comment you left this weekend. I hope you had a great MD, too! I heard y'all were in TX for family pics. I know your parents loved having you all home. I hope your Mom is feeling better. Someone said she's back to work part time so that's good. Have a great week!!
