Sunday evening post

I started my weeding today after a trip to the grocery store.  I can't seem to stay out of the store.

Anyhow lots of weeds to be pulled and lots of breaks in between.  Knees and back are not what they used to be.
This is ready now to put down bags of dirt and mulch in the front of the house.
The ground slants and I would love to have it brought up and a low wall of brick to hold the dirt back.
these two bags and two more taken in back.  I got about 6 more bags to pull..
Dogwood in front trying to beat the cold and bloom nicely.
this was taken from office window later this evening

These were earlier of the ready to burst into bloom azaleas.

The white ones are just as full of buds.

These dogs were trimmed and not as pretty this year but still colorful.

One of my most favorite of colors as far as the azaleas go.

This was taken Friday of Genevieve checking out the primrose I have in a pot.
She was looking for blooms and found one.

She and Opa were having breakfast outside on Friday too.

I am ripping out the slate and putting in the square cement stepping stones.  I want the slate to use for front sidewalk.

I will see if I can move in the morning to do some more weeding and laying of topsoil and mulch.


  1. It's harder to garden as I've gotten older, Betsy. It sounds like you still love it as I do, so we'll keep doing it! Your dogwoods and azaleas look lovely. Our's will be peaking this week, I'm sure. I love the photo of Opa and Genevieve at the table enjoying breakfast---We enjoyed dinner outside today. My favorite! ♥

  2. Betsy,
    I loved seeing all the pretty blooms!! Nothing blooming here yet but i think it will be soon as we are having some nice weather finally!!
    Thanks so much for stopping by and for taking the time to comment!!

  3. Beautiful! Last year I planted few pansies, this year my garden is overflowing with pansies ..:)

  4. It is all looking wonderful, so worth all the hard work.

    1. Thank you. It is getting harder every year but it gets me out and moving.

  5. Betsy, your azaleas and dogwoods are beautiful. The setting looks so serene. Little one peeking at the primrose is so sweet. I remember when Jake was that age, the garden seems to really interest them. Hope your back stays strong, if so, you are a better person than me! So frustrating when MOST of me is willing but the back just doesn't hold out..Happy Wednesday..xxoJudy
