So on this particular evening, Lily and I got home, cooked dinner, ate it and had time to spare. Yay! Instead of an art project or reading time, we hit the great outdoors. Despite my last encounter with a painful caterpillar sting, I thought it wise to weed. Without gloves. Yes, I do have a master’s degree, really I do. But to keep your mind off my stupidity, here’s my cute kiddo. I mean just look at her. Love!!
I weeded like a fiend and sent her down to get the empty cat litter bucket for my weeds.
Then Lily collected flowers. Bored, she reached for some chalk and drew a picture. “Mommy, this is you reaching out your hand to me and I put a vinca flower in your hair.” How many of you know what a vinca minor bloom looks like? My Lily does 🙂 Have I mentioned that I love that kiddo!
During her artistic time I attacked this horrific area. Here’s the before.
And the bucket filled up quickly with my savage yanking of the evil weeds and overgrown plants. Who needs yoga when you can weed?!
And the aftermath of my weeding. I am debating what to plant here. It is really shaded so maybe I’ll stick to more hydrangeas or azaleas.
Adam came home and was left with the task of cleaning up the aftermath. Have I mentioned how much I love him?
