I'm no gardener
For years my huge flowerbed overwhelmed me
and so it became a jungle of grass and weeds.
Josie came one day to examine a lilac that wouldn't bloom
and to my amazement offered to come and help dig up my flowerbed
She simply loves all aspects of gardening!
We dug up weeds and roots
and rocks galore
Some rocks have had to stay
because even Handy Hubby could not budge them.
We dug up plants and cleaned their roots
We sifted the soil
We fed the soil with sheep manure
which thankfully the Rusty Pups were not interested in!
We raked and levelled
After a month..... finally......
....it was time to go shopping!
As Thanksgiving approaches
I am full of gratitude for our friend Josie.
It takes a special friend to come and actually enjoy
helping a non-gardener to tame a jungle!
Thank you also to Joan who was very busy with her own garden
but who helped inspire and shared her plants.
Handy Hubby worked hard too
He replaced all the faded green boards around the front porch.
The flowerbed is kinda protected from wildly interested Rusty Pups!
Rocks are waiting to be placed in the flowerbed.
Mulch will be put down because we all know
I won't enjoy weeding!
What an accomplishment!
Thank you all so very much.
Perhaps now I can stitch again!
