Since Garden Girl was just standing in the side yard without
anything beautiful around her, I decided we should transform
that shady little spot into a lovely flower garden.
I'm looking out this window anyway, from my desk in the kitchen.
It might as well be a beautiful view as I bird-watch, right?
I really had a fun time at the garden center picking out
blue and white flowers and some slate pieces to create a
walk way to the gate. It took me three carts and a couple
of checkouts, but I got it all loaded in the Jeep and then
arranged how I wanted it outside under the tree.
The Mister was nice enough to take up the grass, till the soil and plant
everything for me last night. By the time I woke up this morning,
he had brought home a load of mulch and had it spread around.
Now I just need to keep it watered and enjoy the little sprouts
as they spread and fill in the whole space.
I really love how the sunlight comes softly through the tree
and makes dappled patterns on everything!
What an improvement to that little space!
