Day 214 - Blood, Sweat and Flowers
We've been working on our front garden over the last couple of weeks. It was overgrown and needed a good cleaning out. They're announcing LOTS of rain over the next couple days so we put in 6 hours to finish it up. We dug up and split plants, giving some to friends. We pulled weeds and grass (It seems to grow really well in places you don't want it to.) and finally we spread out the new dirt. It doesn't look very colourful but hopefully next year it will be full of a variety of colours. We're both pretty tired and although there's been a lot of sweat and a tiny bit of blood, there's been no tears yet. The tears may come when we get up in the morning and feel the aches and pains of our work.
