The last couple of years have been extremely difficult years....my daughter and her sweet little toddler living under my roof along with a new precious, pre-mature arrival while her husband/their daddy fought in Iraq ...along with other "extras" in my life as I worked FULL (lots of overtime work) time. As a result, my flowerbeds have been neglected! I worked from 2 to 9 p.m. on Sunday. It felt so wonderful to enjoy the cool spring tempatures with the sun warming the top of my head as I worked away in the dirt! My grandpa was a farmer and he used to say that you feel closer to God when you get your hands in the dirt and work the soil. :) I miss my Grandpa!
It was hard work pulling the weeds and cutting back the ivy but it is so well worth the work! I love the results and I love the flowers! As I get more done, I will post my flower beds! :)
