I can hardly believe we woke up to snow again this morning. Will it ever completely melt away? I'm just itching to get outside and play in the dirt!
Ben and I spent most of the weekend talking, planning and dreaming about our yard. We even made two separate trips to Home Depot. (Scouting expeditions.) We have grand plans and a small budget, so we'll see what actually gets accomplished! Ben and I have never done anything with a yard before. It's all a great, big adventure.
I've been mulling over the flower beds I dug out along the driveway last fall. Ben thinks we should just fill them with bark mulch this year. I sort of agree. I also sort of disagree. I'd like to fill the borders with an easy, pretty, low-growing perennial. I'm thinking pinks might look nice, maybe cheddar pinks? (The name alone is almost enough to sell me.)
If the weather improves I hope we'll rake the lawn next weekend. We may even start digging out the veggie patch along our back fence. I'd love to clean off the deck and bring out the patio furniture, but then I'm sure we'd be guaranteed to receive another dump of snow!
