The Garden

And just like that we’re two weeks into March, already!  Ahhh, March!  March means one thing… spring!  Gardens, Easter, flowers, baby chicks… and perfect weather; I love it all!  The only problem is you can’t garden unless you actually have a garden!  When we first moved into this house, I would spend a long time searching the yard for a nice sunny potential garden spot.  I finally found it… on our patio!  So, together Daniel and I drew-up our dream garden bed.

He began work on it last summer;  {Mostly at night to 1) avoid heat and 2) avoid our 4 little distractions!}  As he was building it, we lovingly referred to it as “the monstrosity.”  After all, as long as it was custom, we had to include everything… like a wrap-around bench that would double as a storage unit for pool toys!

Fast forward to March.  It is finally (almost) complete.  It is filled with dirt.  My “graffiti” on the bench has begun.  Pillows are bought.  The sprinkler system is hooked-up.  And, the plants have been planted.  (Once again, Daniel had some “assistance”)

Oh, they’re just such cute helpers!
