My Poor Garden.

I just couldn't bare it any more...Seeing my poor garden all overgrown and with tons and tons of weeds just broke my heart. After three weeks of no gardening this is what my garden looked like...


Yikes!
But I've been so busy with settling back from our trip and with wedding preparations...
Not to mention it's been too hot lately to be outside.

I'm sorry little garden.

No more excuses! Today I will tend to you not matter what.

Ahhh! Much better.

Nice and clear.

I didn't even notice my new hydrangea bloom under all the over growth.

But after a couple of hours and a lot of sweat, it's all done...
Now, if I can only get hubby to mow the lawn ;-)


Wishing everyone a wonderful day.

Blessings.



Hugs and Kisses,

It's amazing to me how much better a garden can look when the weeds have been removed. Same with the lawn being mowed. It's something simple (well, maybe not in pulling all the weeds!) that makes such a huge improvement.

Now if only pretty flowers would grow like weeds and overtake the garden!! Have a lovely day!!

O Ana, it looks beautiful. You did a great job. Be careful in this heat... Remember, a weed is but an unloved flower
Blessings,

We are down to 63 degrees and still dropping. Morning suppose to be in the 50's which would be a good time to be in the yard or garden. You will be busy with the wedding and all. There will be the last minute things to do for sure. You just take care and find some time to get some rest.

Buongiorno Ana, I understand your suffering I lost all my wonderful aromatic herbs and medicinal herbs, an extraordinary plant jasmine and various other plants, in short, a total devastation, I fully sympathize with you!

Leslie said...

awwww. It doesn't take long for those blasted weeds to take over.
I'm sure you'll have it looking good in no time.

Hope your weekend is awesome.

Hello, Ana, sweet friend,
I have had a struggle with my garden, too. Our temps have been around 100 degrees so it is hard to keep things alive and thriving. Your garden looks very nice after all the tender loving care you have given it. I am hoping for some cooler weather in September, how about you? Sending much love and hugs to you~Vicki

You cannot see the beauty of the garden if all the weeds are scattered. Your garden looks great when you take all the weeds out there. I love your little cute flowers especially the hydrangeas. I just planted some of this plant in my front yard I just hope that it will successfully grow.

I wished that my flowers are just like weeds that row enormously in my garden. If that thing happens maybe my garden will really look an enchanted one. Weeds are really problem in my garden they taking away the nutrients that should be getting by my plants and flowers. I am happy for you that you clean up your garden.
