I hope everybody had a good Memorial Day weekend. Donna and I spent a good chunk of it driving to and from Fleet Farm buying mulch and shovels and potting soil and weed killer and bandages. Our backyard looks like something you'd see on Cops, and this spring we're finally doing something about it.
Anyway, there's a long way to go but we've got one big project out of the way: replanting a flowerbed that had been taken over by the thistles of indifference and the dandelions of neglect (also actual thistles and dandelions).
I've got to put down a little more mulch this afternoon, then it's all finished. I have the before photos and they'll go up tomorrow (along with the afters). It looks pretty good.
