Weekend Recap...yes, I realize it's Wednesday...


Here we are…it’s Wednesday again and I’m just now getting around to a weekend recap.
I know it’s old news now, but it was a busy gardening weekend.  Between Friday and Saturday, we hauled 5 truckloads of mulch and then proceeded to shovel it into our gardens on Sunday.  It was a lot of work upfront, but believe me – it cuts down on the weeding work later on. 
Here’s a few photos of our back gardens.  Never mind the shirtless man in photo 3 – that’s J (reading while he waters the garden).

Next weekend – the deck finally gets finished.  We are adding lattice to the unfinished portion around the bottom to enclose the mass of weeds that grown under there.
After the lattice is completed, it will be my turn to stain the entire upper and lower deck.   This will probably take a couple of weekends because there is so much of it, but it will look great when we are finished – just in time for our Rum Punch Party/BBQ on June 26th!  It’s great to have incentive to get jobs done around the house…
Also, just a reminder…if you haven’t done so yet, please be sure to enter my first giveaway.

Your house looks really pretty (even though I haven't seen the front or the inside) and the back looks awesome! I am jealous! We have a huge deck bug we have a little work to do on it because it was built around a 30 foot round pool and we took the pool out!

My husband does most of the work out in the yard I must admit. I think if I tried to landscape, it would just be a big mess!

Hope your week is going well so far!

Can I come to your party? Sounds like fun! :)
