I’ve gotten behind on blogging over the last week or so! I’ve actually been keeping myself fairly busy. I have recently found great pleasure in working in the yard! I never thought I would like working in my yard, but ever since this post where I got all excited about “leafy little plants” (they’re called CALADIUMS!) I had planted, I have been doing all sorts of stuff outside. We’ve also gone to Texarkana two Fridays in a row to take care of car stuff, went to the Lum & Abner Festival, made a mad dash trip to Poteau (to get MY IPHONE!) worked some crazy hours. Right now C is napping so I’ve got to wrap this up and go get ready for work this afternoon -- but after today I’ve got 4 days off, so I’ll have plenty of time to make up for what I’ve missed. (And there’s some pretty good stuff to share, too!)
For now -- here’s a few pics of some of the things I’ve been doing around my yard.
Impatiens I saved from the half-off (almost dead) section at the Garden Center.
I’ll post their “befores” later.
My front sidewalk - we set up solar lights, put in a garden flag (love it!) and potted the the Impatiens. The plant on the right of the steps is a half-off pink hydrangea from the Poteau Garden Center!
Hydrangea after I potted it. Hopefully it will start looking much better now that it’s in some Miracle Grow soil!
Digging up stupid holly bushes. Stupid, stupid, holly bushes.
