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.
Look at that Hazel, reaching for more things to play with and then…
something went terribly wrong and she fell right into the dirt. She wasn’t too happy about it.
Good thing Grandma Nana is there to comfort and take of my children while I get to take pictures.
And a special thanks to this man who works hard on our lawn every single week in the summer.
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!
