I've had some volunteer projects that have eaten up a lot of my spare time and kept me busy this week instead of outside where I longed to be. I was finally able to spend this beautiful day working on some outdoor projects.
With my hubby and son's help this evening we finally got all of the dirt I had ordered into the backyard border bed.
The stone patio wall had settled some and wasn't level in a couple of areas. I took it apart and rebuilt the two ends. Three of the arborvitae that was planted by the patio for privacy were moved to another part of the yard. I liked the privacy, but I was concerned they would get to large, besides they obstructed my view of the hummingbird flowerbed. I'm a bit overwhelmed with everything there is to do in the yard. The dandelions seem especially bad this year and I have weeds everywhere.
I saw this when I was out yesterday, and thought it was quite fitting.
The nesting box is still getting attention from the bluebirds, sparrows and recently a tree swallow. I sure wish one of them would move in.
I have so many things to plant, but we have a possible light freeze in the forecast, so I'm trying to wait. I hear thunder now, I wish I had remembered to cut the remaining daffodils to bring them inside. I hope everyone has a great weekend!
