Gardening and Enjoying Spring Temperatures

Hi there everyone! I’m back – and loving this beautiful spring weather. It said on the Weather Channel the other night that our winter was one of the mildest on record. Now I’m not disagreeing, but I’m happy that it’s officially spring again. Although my poor hubby has the worst allergies; he’s been coughing and sneezing all week.

One of my favorite things about this season is getting out and working in our yard. I let my husband take care of the grass, but the flowerbeds are my area. Lately, I’ve been putting on my Tummy Tuck Belt under my grungy yard clothes. Last weekend the whole family spent a lot of time outside.

Springtime in our yard calls for a lot of maintenance to resuscitate them from winter. Saturday morning we headed to Home Depot to stock up on some new supplies. The husband needed a new blade for his lawnmower and I found some to-die-for pink gardening gloves. During the day I worked on pruning some of our shrubs, weeding the flowerbeds and deheading some of the flowers and plants (basically just pulling off dead leaves). All in all, it was a tiring day, but I felt great from working in the sun and wearing my Tummy Tuck Belt. Now that all the boring gardening is out of the way, it’s time for the pretty stuff!
