Weekend Work

I thought planting wildflowers up at the cottage was going to be a low maintenance type of gardening. Seventeen wheelbarrows full of dead stalks and debris later, it's hard to believe that this picture from last year. . . . .
. . . .can turn into this the following year.
Never fear though. I finished cleaning it all up and hauling the debris away. And I'm planting additional wildflower seeds tomorrow and hoping for a pretty view again in a month or so. My DH used to refer to this kind of work at the cottage as a "different kind of work." I suppose that was because it was work done in a pretty get-away type of location. For me though, work is work no matter where it is done!

just make sure that your cottage has plenty of lemonade and ice cream!

proud of you for tackling this big job.

That sounds like a lot of work, Jeanne. I have never been crazy about outdoor work...odd, huh? I would much rather organizing my craft room...again and again and again ;-)

You note to me was lovely. Thank you so much for your caring, my friend!

I am hurting from all the yard work, weeding and trimming in our backyard on Saturday. I had gloves on but still a few palm fronds poked through the gloves and pricked my hands ouch! Our daughter is planning a Birthday party at our place so I had to get busy... in the end it feels good to have the yard lookin better. Have a relaxing week. Hugs, Diane
