This weekend, David and I spent a lot of time in the yard. With good reason. It was a jungle. Between the recent tornado/storm weather Georgia has had and our recent jaunts around the world, our yard has been low on the priority list. And you know I always keep it real here at Ten June, so here goes nothing.
Let's just take a walk through the madness.
Our grass seed has a-bloomed. Like woah.
Oh hello, weeds.
Just call our yard Weeds McGee.
Still jealous of our peonies?
After about six hours of David and I working with our hands in the dirt all day Saturday, it's looking a little bit cleaner in the yard these days! I still want to put down mulch in all of the beds, but at least there's no more Weeds McGee.
I wrapped my peony bushes in tomato cages- previously, the blooms were so heavy that they drooped and fell off. Now they're standing tall and proud. And gorg.
The only thing we didn't trim is the hydrangea bush. It's kind of monstrous, but I'm afraid to cut the blooms back for fear of losing the almost-flower buds. Any experts out there with advice?
As you can see, we've still got to get our pool opened for the season. And it's got to be done sooner than later, because we're hosting a big Memorial Day party at our house! We've also got to finish planting our vegetable/flower garden. So far we've got three different kinds of tomatoes, sweet peppers and lavender in the ground- I'll share more details on the garden later!
In an interesting turn of events, I'm no longer embarrassed to get out of my car if a neighbor is walking by. It's kind of weird how the lack of knee-high grass puts a little spring in my step! ; )
