I am WIPED out!
Today, we decided to tackle our front beds in the yard.......it really looked like a small jungle. And me being so scared of snakes, I've always managed to put it off but today, we decided it was just too bad and I'm sure our neighbors hated our yard...if they wanted to sell their house, ours would probably bring down their value. =) So we went out about about 2ish in the afternoon (I'm not sure what we were thinking in 90 something degree weather).....Gracie cut out early, she went inside about 5 minutes into it. Grady ripped out the monkey grass that we had.....all sorts of critters came out of the wood work then. And yes.....2 small snakes graced us with their presence. A snake is a snake to me, I don't care if they are tiny or huge, it's all the same. These were little but I was just waited for Big Momma to show up. Luckily she didn't! I wish I took some before pictures to show you guys how awful it looked, but I'll take some throughout the transformation. Tomorrow, we are going to plant some flowers.....I have NO GREEN THUMB so I hope they stay alive....begonias looks like my best bet, I've heard they are hard to kill. And manual labor isn't my thing....Grady said my face was soooo bright red and I think I took about 10 breaks.....I'm much more of an air conditioner kinda gal! =)
Anywho, here's a couple more of Gracie and the angel wings......I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend! =)
