Then There Is The Front


One day the Bald Kid was particularly bored and started digging up the front flower bed. No particular reason…he just wanted to.


Which turned out to be a pretty handy-dandy thing because Jillian and Josh brought me a zillion impatiens and one giant hydrangea for Mother’s Day.


What, I ask you, would I have done if all that dirt was still hard and weedy and dreadful? Heaven only knows.


But since it was all soft and mushy, we added some soaked peat moss and a busload of compost and stuck those pretty little things right in the ground. Again, I say “we” like I have a mouse in my pocket or something. It was the guy who did it all again. But I took all the flowers out of the packs and lined them all up and handed them to him in just the right order. That’s an important job too.

He is an awfully nice guy though.


It was a good, kind, flowery day.

And it made me very, very happy.

  1. Looks beautiful!! I love flowers, it always makes me know Summer is HERE!! FINALLY!! 😀

  2. So wonderfu to have a nice bed full of flowers. I just wanted to mention that big bags of mulch are really cheap, maybe $3, and if you pour mulch all over the dirt covering comletely with just the flowers sticking out, that will help keep the weeds down and keep dirt softer, etc. Also just looks nicer that plain dirt too…..*smile*
