Mom and I stared tackling this flower bed around 9:30 Saturday morning and finished around 2 in the afternoon.
It took us a while to come up with a plan of action.
Once we got in there and past the bugs,
we were good to go!
Oh...just wait until you see what we found!
Here we are half way done.
Do you see there are actually 4 beds inside?
When we pulled the first few weeds,
we discovered the stepping stones.
We might have even done a happy dance
at that point.
Isn't that awesome!
We didn't add anything.
The stones, pebbles and stepping stones were
all preserved under the weeds and mint tea.
The mint tea had run wild!
Next spring we plan to make this
a cutting garden!
We are not chancing anything here at the Pond House.
What looks like a patch of weeds is actually a
hidden well! Yep, you read that right...a Well.
And the home of one frog. I don't think he appreciated
us messing up his humble abode.
The pond needs lots of love!
Which we are ready to give!
Tony has been reading up on the algae
and I have been tackling the weeds.
There was no where to stand close to the water,
so gloves on and off to work.
1/4 of the pond edge is weed free!
The kids now have a place to stand
to feed the fish, catch tad poles and go fishing!
Lil Tony was the first to catch a fish...
A cat fish to be exact!
Of course P-pa was called to the rescue to
get the hook out and put him (the fish) back in his home
with his friends.
While we were weeding,
Dad was hard at work on the garage!
The garage is missing a door (and a lot more).
Hopefully the door will be in this week
and the new garage doors will be here by next month!
Do you remember how sad I was to leave my hydrangea?
Well, you can imagine how happy I was when I discovered this
beauty! Look at all those blooms!
Can't wait till next spring to see what color they are.
The last bed that mom and I worked on turned out to
be another beauty!
After cleaning out years of weeds we discovered a
a bird bath right in the center of the bed!
We moved the bird bath to the edge of the bed
and Tony added our bird feeder to the center!
One week down and only a million more projects
to tackle! Exactly what we dreamed of!
