Ben and I then bought our first lawn mower, about which I learned yes, you want a self-propelled mower. I also had to learn how to turn a push mower on; my parents had a riding mower for their yard and cows for the pasture when I was growing up. Learned that you can't easily tell your backyard is overrun with weeds if you mow everything low enough...haha.
I finished cleaning up one flowerbed and mulched it, and the weather has kept me from finishing the other :(
My daffodils finally bloomed like crazy!
Planted my very own first real gardenia! Hope it can actually survive here. And Zoey helped.
Also got some other interesting plants, a fuchsia:
And some strawberries in hanging pots.
|So excited about these!|
Finally finished our picture wall, for now...
And I did a lot of cleaning. You can finally walk into the extra bathroom now that I've taken all the tools out and put them away in the shed. Straightened the bathroom closet quite a bit.
