Working on that yard.

It’s that time of year again! Yard work is in full force around the Simmons house. We don’t have a huge plot of land, but it’s not tiny either. A perfect size for our little family at the time actually! When we first moved in over three years ago, the front yard was okay, but the back was a disaster. Full of weeds, weeds, and more weeds. A couple of years ago we tore it all out and brought in new dirt and grass with a spot for a veggie garden of course. Last year was my first year in dealing with my own veggies. It was taken over by bugs come August. Real gross. I vow to stay on top of it this year! Stay away bugs! I planted flowers to help deter the bugs with their scent and need to purchase bug repellent.  My gracious Mother comes and helps me plant and even brings plants from her own garden to beautify our yard.  She’s too good to us.

something went terribly wrong and she fell right into the dirt. She wasn’t too happy about it. photo PampD5272014_KaraSimmons_4_zpse262a273.jpg
Good thing Grandma Nana is there to comfort and take of my children while I get to take pictures.  photo PampD5272014_KaraSimmons_5_zps41deafd2.jpg photo PampD5272014_KaraSimmons_7_zps41a99c13.jpg photo PampD5272014_KaraSimmons_13_zps7cb9a138.jpg photo PampD5272014_KaraSimmons_8_zps3cb7d25d.jpg photo PampD5272014_KaraSimmons_9_zps770cfaf9.jpg

And a special thanks to this man who works hard on our lawn every single week in the summer. photo PampD5272014_KaraSimmons_14_zps4a5d2876.jpg
Grow plants grow! I have even remembered to water them every day since planting. Hopefully, the will know this to be a loving environment and choose to stick around. Please plants! Please!
