Yesterday was 5-6 hours planting and weeding. This morning hubby helped me get the mulch down. I'm pleased.

Happy Memorial Day!

Beautiful gardens! The foals were tired watching you work.

I wish i had time to garden- walked around this morning- stupid deer at the tops of the phlox! Getting out the Irish Spring soap- too late for them, but maybe something else with benefit.

Thanks for sharing!!!

Karla, Now that you've practiced I think you're ready to come help me in my yard! :D No? Ahhhh!
Your yard is beautiful and will be even prettier as summer progresses. Everything is so lush and green. Neat place to sit with a tall glass of iced lemonade and a good book. Or perhaps some quilting handwork.

Everything looks so beautiful and fresh! I remember the sodden pictures earlier this year! It was worth it to get to the beauty of NOW!
The foals got tired of waiting for their turn for fun!
Thank you for brightening my life with your great photography! :lol:

OK Karla, now that you have worked so hard, you should go by your babies and sit down and you will probably have one or two lap horsies to cuddle with...What a way to relax..........................
