Saturday was one of those perfect work in the yard days! Very little wind, and the temperatures were perfect! My son and two grandsons came over to lend a hand, or six! Together we spent about 6 hours cleaning out beds, raking, trimming, and mowing. Riley, who is five, is still wondering why I like to work in the yard. He says, "this yard work is very annoying!"
What we accomplished together would have taken me 3 weekends! I am so grateful for all their help. I was so tired and so sore when we were done. And boy did I pay for it the next day too. But that is OK. Soon, I can begin planting my very first vegetable garden and I am very excited about that.
Here are a few pictures of my wonderful helpers.
