This was that one day that I dream about all winter – warm, 70 degrees, no wind, sunny, the absolute perfect day to work outside. The only problem is that I can’t rake and clean flower beds all day like I used to and that makes me so mad, disappointed, disgusted – you name it! I had to come in and “watch” the first game – actually I fell asleep in my chair and then I went outside again. I cleared the area alongside the ramp – raked and cut down the dead Karl Foerster grass and raked the front yard.
I am moving hydrangeas into this area this spring and moving the grasses out. There isn’t enough sun to support the grass but it will be perfect for the hydrangeas and I’ll put up the iron fence sections along the hydrangeas to keep them from falling over.
Moving on to the “rock garden area” which also has too much Karl Foerster grass – I’m going to take down the landscape block that keeps tipping over anyway. If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em, right? It will be easier mowing, too.
This is definitely a work in progress!
I have three definite areas to work on but will try to do only one per day. I have the lily bed, the hydrangeas and the area next to the quilt shop on the north side of the sidewalk. When the day comes that I can’t do this work anymore, I’ll know it’s time to move to town and life as I’ve always known it will end. It’s too hard to think about.
In the meantime, here is Connie’s #2 for April. I love it!
And I haven’t looked for my #2 yet. I have 3 projects going right now, 4 if you count the bird quilt on the longarm machine! Yikes!!
Have a blessed Easter, Friends!
PS – I got so involved in the game that I forgot to hit “publish” – have you ever seen such an ending? College basketball at its finest!
He is risen! He is risen indeed! Happy Easter to all of you!
