Garden of Keenan
We didn't do much this past weekend. We decided to make our house look a little more aesthetically pleasing. We tore up the plants on the side of the garage in order to make way for some flowers. The nasty smelling garlic plants and poor under cared for lily plants were just not cutting it. That and it just looked ugly. So I started to rip plants out, started to dig plants out and then Greg pretty much finished that job. Owen helped by running up and down the front lawn, playing with and getting scratched by the neighbor's cat and then bolting out of sight to play in the neighbor's driveway. We aren't bad parents, I swear. The kid is just so fast! Why doesn't he just stay in one spot!?! Oh yeah, and he loves earthworms. "Whem" is how he pronounces it.
So we went on a trip to Armstrong Garden Center and a few duckets later...voila!! Our lovely garden! Complete with a frog that represents each one of us. How cute is that!? We also bought this really cool mulch that is made of cocoa shells. It smells like Willy Wonka's chocolate factory would, if there really was one! So much better than the nasty garlic plants!
We did a good job. Greg and I planted while Owen napped, thank goodness! It was a hot day out and I'm glad we got an early start. The sun was blazing, but luckily we were planting in the shade for the most part. Hopefully you'll be able to stop and smell the chocolate soon.
