Warm, sunny weather has finally arrived. It was gorgeous yesterday … high in the low 70’s with the sun shining. More of the same (with a slight chance for some late afternoon rain) is forecast for the rest of the weekend.
Because yesterday was so beautiful, I decided to make hay while the sun shone … or at least work in the yard. I replenished the mulch in the landscaping … which brings to mind the question: where does the mulch go? I replenished and put down plenty of mulch on the new landscaping last spring … and yet, I needed 11 bags of mulch to fill back in this spring.
I also ran to Lowe’s to get some flowers to put in my pots. I like to have flowers out on the deck and some in the front. I also looked for some landscaping/garden accents.
After we were done working in the yard, we went for a walk around the neighborhood. It’d been so long since we’d been able to do that … the weather has not been conducive to much time outside lately (which made yesterday’s lovely day even more special). We chatted for a bit with some of our neighbors … including the couple at the end of the cul-de-sac with the pool in their backyard. I have to admit that I did drool a little at all the landscaping and decorating they did in their backyard (and the pool, too!).
We followed that up with a trip to the Gun Club for some Captain Hog’s BBQ. Yummy!
We wrapped up our day by watching the Cardinals game (our pitcher got to within 2 innings of a perfect game – it was pretty exciting!). I did some hand quilting on T#4’s big girl quilt while we watched the game. A wonderful ending to a wonderful day!
Happy Mother’s Day!
