in the garden

Early in the morning, I like to drink my coffee outside, in the garden. Only the other day, when I sat down, I realized that the garden really needed a little love and attention.17 garden 117 garden 217 garden 3

Overgrown and overrun with weeds is not a good place to be going into summer. The spring is when we really get the gardens in shape, both flower and vegetable. Somehow spring has gotten away from me.

Conveniently, we had a sports-free day on Saturday and the hubby, boys, and I got out there and got to work. An hour or so of weeding and mulching makes such a difference. There is is still a lot to do, but at least the part that I see when I sit out in the morning and evening looks a lot better!

Still a little overgrown, but I like it. It reminds me of an English cottage garden.17 garden after 6
