Transformation…

Today was another outdoor day… I had to take a break between 2 and 4 due to the heat and sun. So here is a recap of what I have done over the last two days outside…

One of my new flowers (see below)

First I had to clean out all of the flower beds, raking up all the leaves and things into piles, then digging out all the plants and such I no longer want in the flower beds, and adding those to the piles…

I mowed the grass and then raked up all the grass into piles to collect…

This was one of 8 piles and a smaller one at that…

I then picked up all the piles and put them in holes that needed filling in the ditch. I got to use the new trailer for our tractor and it dumps so it is very useful 🙂

Yahhh new dump trailer

Then I had to clean out the beds and make them ready for the new flowers I got…

After (I added a Wild Berry Coneflower)

I also planted a watermelon vine in the front bed that gets the right light to grow as I can not plant it in the garden… the chickens might eat the vines if they get out of control.

Here are some final shots of a few of the flowers I planted out front….

Gerber Daisy’s

The flower bed is now transformed… The only bad part of the weekend was today when I was trying to put the gas can back in the shed a big long 4-ft rat or black snake was blocking the door to the shed. My neighbor came over to make sure he didn’t go into the shed and only under it. If you know me, you know I HATE snakes… imagine that a country girl who still has this kind of fear of snakes, but I do. Needless to say hubby will be putting up the gas can and tractor tonight when he gets home from work…

I hope you all receive many blessings this week…
