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.

Your home is lovely! So full of character. The garden is going to bring lots of pleasure next year, I'm sure...

Excellent shot! I love the look of the fence on one side, and the garden meandering down on the other! (P.S: I can TOTALLY relate to the tears part after painting the house all day!)

Looks like a home straight out of a fairy tale. Just happened upon your blog. Great pictures!
