Ready Indeed

002

We are sooo ready for this spring stuff to really truly get here and stay.

014

The trees are flowering…

004

and snowing petals everywhere.

005

The periwinkle is blooming all over the place…

028

and the crazy old blueberry bush has kicked back in.

016

So much of the yard is cooperating  just as it should…

001

and the back grass is finally, FINALLY green.

011

Yesterday the Bald Kid tilled up the garden patch and dug in all the old weed control newspapers that were still hanging around from last year.

019

And I’m learning how to use my dad’s very cool composter to make our hard old Utah clay just a bit more wonderful.

020

Pretty proud of our compose in progress–oh, do be proud of me.

008

But the best part is that my little patch, the one that’s kinda mine, well, it’s getting an overhaul this week.

024

We’re pulling out all the weeds and any other odd things we find, thinning the strawberries and trimming back the roses and planting a few perennial flowers here and there just because we want to.

025

We’re pulling out the old broken wood border and replacing it with something…better (imagine me giggling my head off!).

029

Oh, we’re ready all right to go out there and get to work making it all beautiful and orderly and crisp and tidy and flowery…

022

tomorrow.

~sigh~

  1. It’s been fun to get out and see the summer sky for sure! We’ve been out in our garden planting corn with the kiddos and they all were old enough to help. 🙂 Love sunny days!

  2. Looking super good! Good work you guys! Did you get new gardening gloves? They’re really cute 🙂
