A weeded garden is a happy garden :) .... right Wen?

So....what did you do on your holidays....uuhhh...weed the garden!
preparing the tarp for the arrival......distracted by the spring colours

child labour??? Nah! They LOVED it!

the big arrival....mulch...what and rocks! Yikes!

home sweet home....looking good!

the troops are getting distracted! Hey! No football! (but nice kicking style Katie) - there is work to be done....mulch that sideway
Yup bud...I feel the same...it was a big day...these old bones of mine are feeling it.
Good job everyone :)

Yes, kids always love to help out in the garden! Although your poor son did look tired at the end, LOL!
Now what was all the dirt and rock for? Looks like a big project;)

LOL...just don't look at my gardens right now, Yikes!! My gardens are very UN-happy!! Wow you had your work cut out for you...a load of mulch and rocks!! Love the photos of the flowers, I would have been distracted too!! Yea to child labor and fun too...lol...and how long did they enjoy it? The photo of Hugh tells it all he is all tuckered out!! Now for some rest and hopefully a trip to one of the Zoos!!

Val said...

Helen, you can't do this... honestly!!
YOu just CAN NOT!

It is damned freezing and raining here ( 3 deg celcius)... It is just unfair to play your "sun-garden-summer" card now....

well great job kiddos!

WOW! BIG project there!! Good thing you had lots of help!! The finished product looks so nice. It seems so funny that you're in "Spring mode" as we're cleaning up thing and getting ready for winter!! We have one lonely tree on our front yard and I've still raked three times this last week....what's up with that???

Helen M said...

Gosh, and to think we left all that fun (?hard work?) behind! Loved your photo story!
