You guys… I did something totally spontaneous this past weekend, that I cannot wait to blog about! I even bought another point and shoot camera for the trip (after having lost my last one on our Hawaiian vacay). I needed some mountain time before fall hit hard, so I head for the hills for a 2 night cabin stay I’ll share with you soon! And will share my new toy too!
In other super (well, maybe not very) exciting news, I’ve been attempting to maintain the flowerbeds. Again. It’s a never ending journey for me for some reason.
And because my mess appears to inspire others, always happy to help. Mess comes easy here.
There is this fairly long flowerbed strip along the driveway that was so choked full of weeds, that once the weeds were removed, nothing was left. As in… just soil. 🙂 I was sooooo over the overgrown whatever had been planted there, so it was ripped right out.
So I rummaged through my junk stash, and came up with an old bench, Farmers’ Market sign, and a few other rusty trinkets as fill ins. Until I plant something next spring.
Boy, I do weeds well, I’ll give me that.
Here you can see I had a head start on the garden game of shame before I thought to haul out the camera.
But something rather magical transpired after the 2nd weeding. Some of the plants spread out, so it wasn’t completely bare any longer!
Maybe it pays not to weed so much after all…
The pallet wood walkway also got pulled up then straightened out again.
It’s finally starting to deteriorate after a few years, so next spring I’ll try something new here.
The rusty orb tutorial is here, if you’d like to make one too.
Me? Ahead of the garden game? Pretty hard to believe that one.
Because… right on target?
It needs weeding.
Hmmm… where can I travel to next? 🙂
The sign was made with the Farmers’ Market stencil you can find HERE.
Are your flowerbeds ready for fall, or are you scrambling as well before the rain and frost hits?
