Weekend work


Well, now that the weather in NH is truly hitting the "hot" range, I can no longer put off the dreaded project - my mulch pile. While I really do love working in my flower beds, spreading mulch is not one of my favorite chores. With the summer weather now upon us, I am out of time and need to get the mulch down to help protect my plants and conserve on water.

I had to take a photo of it in front of my car just so I could have a point of reference when my back is breaking and I need to realize just how much mulch has been moved once the weekend is over. My timing is a bit off - it is supposed to be in the ninety degree range this weekend - last weekend would have been a much better time to do this project as it was nice and breezy and in the seventies! But, as usual, my procrastination has caught up with me and I'm going to pay the price.

It will all be worth it - the flower beds looks so much nicer and cleaner when fresh mulch has been spread. Hope your weekend is much more relaxing!

The only thing about putting that mulch out is that it's so nice once it's done to stand back and see how good it looks!!
Take care and have fun...
