Yesterday Lucy the puggle princess and I were up and out the door by 6:30 and ready to pull weeds. I absolutely LOVE working in the yard as the sun comes up and the birds are chirping their songs.
The lasagna garden I started building last fall is coming along nicely. I ditched our yard waste bin months ago and haven’t looked back. I knew when we bought this house I wanted to build up this area in the backyard and plant a perennial flower bed. But having to haul in soil and buy fully grown plants would have cost a pretty penny.
By going the slow and steady route, I should have this area completed later this fall thanks to all the leaf litter, grass clippings, compost and pine needles I’ve been able to collect for free through general maintenance of our property.
All the hostas have opened up!
And the laurel hedge is in full bloom.
Pinky the flamingo and crew are working as placeholders for my upcoming plantings…
And now all that’s left to do is sit back and wait for the warm weather to stabilize so I can get the beans and squash planted. Yee- Haw! Spring is here.
Have a great Sunday everyone,
