I Accomplished a Lot This Weekend

After spending an hour in Joanne Fabric Store, I went into Big Lots (right next to Joanne's) and I found some gardening gloves. I bought six pairs so I should be set for the summer.
As soon as I got home I put on a pair and started raking one side of the arbor gardens. This is what the gloves looked like less than two hours later:

The garden looks pretty clean... at least on this side.
Can you believe I got three wheelbarrow loads from just the center area? It's amazing how many pine needles and pine cones fall from these trees.

I have not even started to rake the other side. There is so much work to do!

I planted the Orange Perfection in the barrels on the deck. One barrel has two plants

and one has just one in the middle back. There is some blue Russian Sage on each side of the orange.

I also planted the two Pineapple Lilies and put them in the garage because it's still a month or more before they can go outside.

I did not remember that I was getting two bulbs. I remember that the bulb was pretty expensive, so I feel better that I got two instead of one.

I decided that I had done enough for one day.

This week after work I will do a bit more each evening, if the weather is nice.


  1. good job girl....I go through a lot of gardening gloves also...

  2. Zoey, did we talk about the 'curly' grass last year? I can't remember, but I THINK we both had it in our garden. I uncovered it today and it has survived my zone! Woo-hoo! Looking forward to following your gardening life!

  3. Pine needles are a pain but they make good coverage in the flowerbeds in winter!

  4. I have never been to a big lots. In a couple of weeks we are going to a conference in a town that has one. I might have to check it out.

  5. Those garden gloves look like you've been hard at work, Zoey..and that is how they should look:)
    I'm glad that you are pacing yourself!

  6. Looking good! I didn't realize you had a Big Lots so close-there is one down the road from me-less than a mile where Sean use to work. I picked out a few things for our anniversary for the garden. I haven't seen if Brian got me the correct ones yet.
    Your planters should be lovely
