Yesterday, the kids got the hair-brained idea to dig up the old (read "ignored"), overgrown garden and plant flowers in it. The last week of sunshine and nice temps has really motivated them to start up the gardening again, and i had a tough time saying "no" - so, i didn't. :^)
So, 2 hours later, we had tired backs, weak muscles, a giant trash bag full of weeds, and a beautiful little garden where once a nightmare had been. This morning, i had to go out back and look at it just to appreciate all our hard work again. Now, maybe we'll be able to control ourselves until we can plant the veggies!
(you may not know what it looked like before this shot, but i do... and what an improvement!)
