Long weekends basically mean demanding physical labor without the reward of getting a paycheck.
Oh, sure, the accolades come with a WONDERFUL night’s sleep and the prettiness of a garden/yard that doesn’t lodge red barbs into the fleshy parts of ones skin, but the paaaaaiiiiiinnnnn.
Let’s take Exhibit A.
The Flower Boxes.
(you may recall last year, when I opted to rearrange 90% of my garden)
We’re pretty civil about yard work.
I want the flowers, so I am charged to take care of them.
Or not, as the photos above show.
3 liters of water and two contractor bags later…
Now the weeds have so much more room to grow!
The New Mrs. has been very good in his time off and has done a crapload of work around the house/yard.
One of his tasks was to even out the pond bed and fill the mole holes.
So, while these are “pre” pictures, they’re not totally accurate as he did about two days of work before this.
And about $55 in plants later…
And before I leave you with a number of other photos of plant life which will probably be dead soon from my lack of care, here is Bailey and her friend next door, Elle.
And now, random flowerness.
