The work continues on getting the beds cleared. The upper beds were easy-ish for me to get cleaned out, but now that we are working the lower beds near the house I have started to take the ‘throw some money at it’ approach. I love this approach, sadly my wallet does not.

But it’s starting to look great, hopefully next week I get the bark and start laying it down.

There are a lot of flowers in the yard, it’s nice when the gardener does the clearing cause she actually recognizes the stuff that is already here, breaks it up, spreads it around. It makes me feel really plant-ignorant but I guess no ones starts out as an expert gardener.

Things are starting to bloom in the yard, the magnolia tree is this riot of color. It’s just beautiful.

I am still a little shocked sometimes that this is all ours.
