How I Spent My Saturday – 7/17/2010

Hi all!  Hope you had a fantastic weekend!  We were very busy campers here.

Saturday morning, we were greeted by this site in our driveway:


7 yards of Compost Grove mulch mix!

Since the delivery man was so nice as to dump it right-smack-dab in the middle of our driveway, we had to get this pile moved pretty quickly, so we got to work doing this:


and this:


Until finally it was all gone.  I’m so happy to have this done, but the best part is that, in order to get the mulch into the back yard, we had to take it through the side gate – a place we rarely go – and every single time I walked through, I was treated to a lovely view of my yard.


I’m usually noticing all the things that still need to be done in the yard, but this view was so pretty that it made me notice other wonderful things about our yard and I ended the day feeling quite pleased and content (and how often does that happen, really?). 

Just a few more pics to share…






Hope your weekend was fun and productive as well!


  1. Hey!!! I just noticed I'm not on your blog list. Ahem... your decorating partner in crime SHOULD be on your blog list. Just sayin'.

  2. Ewwww. Now that I look a little closer, I see I am. (Tail between my legs, looking sheepish.)

  3. Fun but not productive. Your backyard is beautiful. Could you put up a cot back there? In the shade. Then I'll come over and park myself in that cot and get a closer look. Maybe take a nap. Smell the fragrant...fragrances. It just looks like it smells wonderful. It's been so hot here that we've locked ourselves indoors and I'm getting antsy.

  4. Your yard looks like a wonderful haven, but all that mulch? Looks like WAY too much work!
