The Victoria Day Long Weekend was just what I needed to re-charge my batteries! Eventhough I’m tired from weeding, planting flowers and laying down mulch (thanks for your help Mom and Dad!), I’m so happy that it’s done! And let’s not even talk about how sore my thighs are from planting those flowers!
Along the side of the garage runs a neglected flower bed, which made me cringe everytime I walked by. So this year I tackled the weeds, planted some marigolds and laid down mulch. But it still looked a little empty. So I put a shepards hook in the corner to fill up the empty space and planned on getting a hanging basket later on. But my husband suggested that we use our old galvanized bucket and use that to plant flowers in. Brilliant! And this boy doesn’t even have a Pinterest account! (Please ignore the rocks on the ground, the empty flower urn and the garden hose, those are next on my to-do list)
My only hesitation was that there wouldn’t be any drainage, so he took our garden claw, flipped over the bucket and punched some holes. Voila! A hanging basket was born!
Now we have to tackle the garden in the backyard…my thighs are already crying thinking about it!
