A fine mess . . .

I worked my tail off in the yard today. I took care of my house and the vacant house next door. I have done the yard over there for the past year and I will continue doing it again this summer. I cannot handle the yard overgrown, and it is small so I would rather take care of it than have it an eye sore on the block. I mowed, trimmed, raked, used the blower and weeded my beds. I also spread 8 bags of mulch out front and 80 pounds of cow manure out back in the garden. My hands are stained red from the mulch and my nails will never be the same. I hate wearing gloves.

I am a mess, but I feel good. I love yard work. It gives me a huge sense of accomplishment. I even took some of my plants out to the porch . . . ah, spring.

It feels so good to have a big project accomplished! You will have some real beauty later to make up for the ruined nails.
