Happy First Day of Spring, Dear Reader!
We have had the loveliest weather and I've been taking full advantage by working in the yard. My current project is beautifying one of the front flower beds (the one I pulled the bushes up from).
Yesterday I bought a yellow rose bush ($7) in memory of my grandma who we southern grandchildren called Mom. Yellow roses were her favorite. I also bought four red geranium plants on clearance for $2.50 each and four bags of mulch ($1.96 each).
I am laying newspaper down first and wetting it, then down goes the fabric weed blocker, and finally the mulch. I detest pulling weeds so I am hoping this helps keep that to a minimum!
We are expecting rain the nexty four days, but I'm hoping to have that flower bed done by Saturday. I'll be sure to post pictures!
From my Spring lovin' heart to yours,
