This past weekend proved to be quite gorgeous in terms of weather...highs in the 60's and intermittent sunshine.
And altho the kids loved spending it outside...Im sure doing yard work wasnt what they had in mind.
At any rate....I looked at this flowerbed for the millionth time and said enough was enough. It was time for a little bit of Spring cleaning.
We got to work and began clearing out all the debris from last season and loaded it up in my trusty wagon. That wagon is looking a little weary these days. But not to worry...it got all fixed up by S as we were working.
G is telling me that raking is a whole lot of hard work.
Now hes putting a little emphasis on that statement by telling me just how worn out he is. Being 4 is really hard at times.
Lucky for him he has a really great big brother who offered to help.
And that break wasnt very long lived. Before I knew it G was in the back yard starting on a whole new spot.
Water and soap are always attractive to a 4 year old.
After very specific instruction he says hes ready for a go at it all on his own.
We were all very happy to see brand new green growth. Soon to be tulips to be exact.
And look! Even a tiny bit of color with some precious yellow crocuses.
Between the 4 of us, we busted out those flower beds. And now when I walk by this one....not only does it make me happy that its all pretty and clean, but it reminds me that Spring really is just around the corner.
