this may shock you.

Those of you who 'really' know me, know that I don't like to do 'dirt' or mulch.
However, this year my hubby decided to have 5 yards of mulch delivered.
We spent hours and hours on Friday laying the new mulch.
We ran out, and now we have to buy a bit more.
I haven't done such back breaking work in a long time. I have a new appreciation for landscapers.
And I am sunburned. seriously.


On a prettier note.
I have some blooms....

Peonies almost blooming...

And a wretched excuse for a garden that I started from seed.
Really they aren't as bad as they look. I think with some more TLC they will perk up.
I think.
Come on go with me on this one.

That's a lot of TLC (and maybe water??) you're going to have to come up with fairly soon. LOL

Very nice! I haven't gotten out in my garden yet. Only thing I have done so far is rake out all the fallen leaves. I have some things to plant. Maybe I'll get around to it this week.

We did the mulch one year, you don't realize how fast, you use it up. I need to get out and work on plantings in my yard, but it is either too hot or raining.

I can totally commiserate with you on the plants from seeds - I have managed to kill mine every year I try. I finally gave up and decided to just buy grown plants! Sorry about the sunburn....

QUILTING IS BLISSFUL, DI said...

I have to say that your garden in the little pots looked like some I did a couple years ago!!!
Looks good--all your work will bring pretty flowers!!

We haven't done mulch in a couple of years and it sadly needs to be done soon. However, we usually need something more on the lines of 40 yards! It truly takes us a while to lay it all down. I can't believe your peonies are ready to bloom. Mine are just coming up! Looking forward to seeing your blooms.
