Annual Re-mulching, Garden Progress

Every year for my birthday, I ask my husband for the same thing.


Yes that is right, I ask for beautiful, red landscaping mulch!

I LOVE to have a nice, neat, and orderly yard.  It just makes me feel awesome. I love the smell of fresh mulch, and the way it neatens up our home on the outside.  It has become something I look forward to each and every year!  Take a look at my before and after pics, and I think you will see why:

Ahhh.  It just FEELS so much better!

While he was at it, hubby got our garden tilled up again and the raised beds cleaned up.  So far we have planted lettuce, radishes, spinach, tomatoes, carrots, and potatoes.  We plan to plant watermelon, corn, sweet peppers, and a few other things still yet!!  I am very excited for this gardening season.

I have so far had ZERO luck finding the right chicks at the feed stores around here.  But I *think* we might have a hen sitting so we will see what the future brings!  For now I am LOVING this weather and how neat and tidy our lawn is looking.


  1. Your home looks beautiful! We are hoping to do a little landscaping soon. We've been caught up in trying to do indoor repairs that outdoor stuff has taken a backseat for a few weeks. :)

  2. It really does make a difference! It's funny how you always need more mulch than you think. For us, it never goes far enough! Love your cute kitties getting in on the shots as well :) Take care!
