Creating more work for myself
The other day I spent two hours removing the sod around our little sickly front-yard-tree, creating a new flower bed. I really should stop doing these large projects until after the baby is born. It was exhausting. And now I have to figure out what to plant in it. I want lots of spring bulbs, and maybe a summer-blooming ground cover. But all that has to wait until we go pick up our cubic yard of topsoil, since I want to put some in this new bed. The above picture is before...but after I started moving the bricks over to decide how big I wanted it. I was way too lazy to move them out of the way for a true before picture. And after...sort of. I was going to wait until after I had planted something, but I changed my mind. I like the old bricks as edging. And here's some random pictures of my big girl (she'll be two years old soon!) enjoying the sunshine. She is quite pleased that we finally bought some "Tunias a Fankin" (petunias for Franklin...yes, my turtle planter is named after the cartoon, he looks exactly like him!). And thus ends today's disjointed and random post.
