Last weekend REF and I worked on the yard. If you have a yard you understand how yard work is seriously never ending. Anyhow, I worked on getting the spring bulbs and pansies planted while REF worked on staining the deck.
I planted about 125 bulbs in the pile of dirt. I’m guessing that about 2/3 will bloom. It’s only been a couple of days and I’m already obsessing about them. I’m worried that the squirrels or deer will dig them up and eat them. I’m worried that I planted them too deep or too shallow. I’m worried that I won’t like the WAY that I planted them and they’ll be all wonky. Clearly, I obsess over things that I can’t control.
I put bulbs in the window boxes and the pots on our front porch! I’m actually pretty excited to see if these come up. When the summer comes I’ll simply “replant” the bulbs in my pile of dirt in the back to add to that section.
REF’s dad came down on Saturday morning to help REF get started on staining the deck. I was actually up in Boone hanging out with friends for homecoming. REF and his dad worked ALL day on deck. REF worked for about 4 hours on Sunday too, but then we and our Lowes ran out of stain! We still have a bunch to do next weekend, but it is looking great. I’m really impressed with REF’s hard work!
I thought I would add this picture of Winston and his frienemy, Henry. They have a love/hate relationship. Henry loves Winston. Winston hates Henry.
