Making the most of a rare sunny 74 degree day on Saturday, the Hubster & I spent all day gardening and tidying ready for spring. He did the digging and I did the raking, great teamwork.
28 bags of leaves and Cottonwood tree scraps later, with some very worthwhile paid help from the neighbours children, things looked alot better.
This bed was full of Canna Lilies, but the Hubster dug them all out (no mean feat!) and we replanted it with evergreen shrubs, Photinia a fave of mine. The Hubster also relocated a number of other established shrubs to preferred locations around the garden.
Then it was onto the christmas lights, unlike last year, we avoided being the neighbourhood 'rednecks' and got them down before May!
It was now Sunday afternoon & the Hubster was in need of an attitude adjustment!
And all my other time since last Wednesday has been spent working on my Christmas quilt. These are the first 2 blocks, the top one after the appliques have just been applied. And beneath is the finished block, with hand embroidery and accessories all completed. It's a block-a-month and the finished quilt will be King size, so there's a long way to go yet!
