This post was inspired by a picture I recently saw in a magazine. A lady working in her garden was wearing a long white (yes, white!) summer dress. Her long shiny hair flowed around her shoulders.She was stepping on a shovel in white sandals with a bunch of day lilies sitting on the ground beside her. She was a true vision of beauty.
We were supposed to believe she was transplanting day lilies.
Come on Editors!
Here is what I looked like this morning when I went out to do some serious garden work.
Well coiffed, I'm not! (You purposely can't see much of me in this picture.) I do have some pride! :) )
No white long dress either.
No white sandals for this garden gal. These are serious working shoes!
I did about three hours of work. I spent nearly two of those hours with scissors cutting down all the sedumn Autumn joy. Luckily I can still stoop for long periods of time without pain. After two hours I had to stop the cutting because I was getting a blister from the scissors. I still have one more large bed to cut down.
Overall I am quite happy with the day's accomplishments. These beds are looking much better from the road (sorry about the poor lighting. I am too lazy to go out after the sun goes down and retake the picture).
Look what DH found living in the grill burner.
A tree frog.
See all that stuff around it?
I think it's froggy doo doo. I've never actually seen froggy doo, but what else could it possibly be?
Inside the house, I did a load of laundry, cooked a meatloaf and corn-on-the-cob dinner
and changed my bed quilt for the new season.
Yes, I had a very productive day!
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
