Reworking the Garden

Tonight, I am exhausted so is Rick and Jordan.  The three of us redid our flower bed at the back of the deck today.  There were already peonies,  and several other perennials, but a few of the older plants had died and it was time to do the hard stuff...that meant shovels, digging forks, enriching the soil and replacing the dead plants.

The fatigue is worth it.  Tonight the bed is filled with foxglove, larkspur, daisies ,lilies  and zinnias.
Even the old plants look happier.  Jordan loves getting his hands in the dirt.  I am sure when he took his bath tonight, his mom was appalled at the amount of dirt in the water.

It was the perfect spring day in Alabama, highs in the 70's with low humidity and brilliant blue skies.
I am so ready for a cup of hot tea and bed.

Goodnight, Sweet dreams
