For my birthday this year, my folks were generous (foolish? Your call...) enough to come down and help me with some outside projects for my birthday present. I wanted to get the front landscaping edged, put in a few little flower beds, and Jude has been itching to have a garden of his own. His first grade class has a garden, and Jude has found a passion for gardening this year. So with the help of "Pa" and "DiDi", I now have some sweet looking work done!
I finally got to put some flowers in the purse planter I got in January. While we grabbed a quick bite to eat at Cracker Barrel this morning (don't panic - I had oatmeal with pecans, a sliced banana, and ice water), we found an adorable garden decoration of a boy and a dog. Sounded like my house, so we got that to put out front. My folks also bought me a "Knockout" rosebush for out back. And Jude's garden is ready for planting.
There is still a little more work to do, but we are well on our way! Tomorrow we will tackle the flower bed in the backyard, and fill my pots with flowers. Then it will be time to sit back and enjoy!
