Well, we have had two non-raining days in a row! It's been so nice to be able to come home and spend an hour or two working outside, like a normal summer. It finally feels like we are accomplishing something. Unfortunately, there is a long way to go. Yesterday and today we were able to cut the grass down another layer, getting closer to our ideal length. We also have weeded a good portion of the butterfly garden and the new hydrangea bed, preparing for mulch which we will hopefully get to this weekend. We also cleared out the small bed in front of the shed in preparation for our new rose bushes and we took down a nasty tree in the front flower bed as well as some suckers growing along the fence. Next we hope to clean up the front flower bed and get the new plants in the ground! Plus new mulch all around. After we get the flower beds tidied up, we will move onto the veggies which are also a mess.
