Rainy days are lazy days

This morning was a treat for the senses.  There is nothing like snuggling with your cat and listening to the crashing sounds of a thunderstorm.  The rain pelting the window...the resonant rumble of thunder in the doesn't get any better.

Revamping this bed meant adding grasses, heuchera and rudbeckia

Having managed to get most of my planting done recently, the sound of rain meant I didn't have to haul out the hoses again to water.  It also gave license to have a relaxing morning since I couldn't get out there to continue the yardwork.

But, after lunch the weather cleared, so outdoors I went.  Then it began to spit and sputter a little rain, but I kept at it.  My motto is that unless there's lightening I can keep digging with my hand trowel.

have no idea what I'll plant, but I know it will be fun!
I managed to get the shrubs in and the grass out.  I worked on the edging where the grass has grown over the brick edges.  I pulled weeds.  I had fun!  Then I decided to work on the extension of the front flower bed.  I only wanted to make it easier to mow in this area, but ended up almost tripling the size of the bed.  Oh well.

  1. Lazy days are also happy body days. At least, mine says thank you whenever I take a lazy day! Your yard is looking really nice. One of my next yard projects is to put little edges around our gardens. They will look so much nicer. You have a great day, hugs, Edna B.
