Last weekend was just glorious with temperatures around 70. Just perfect! Much to my kids' dismay, we declared Saturday morning our annual mulch day. The day when we drive to Home Depot a couple of times and fill up our SUV with bags of mulch. And then come home to spread it all. They did a great job and while they did all the work, I supervised while relaxing with a cup of coffee. Just kidding, I got to work on planting a few containers for spring.
The little seating area makes up for our lack of a big farmhouse front porch. Oh, how I dream of having a porch again! Unfortunately, that's not part of our plan for this house so this will need to suffice for now.
