The Crippling of 2013.
It happens every year about this time as I start garden work for the first time.
How is it that I can lift weights and do cardio nearly daily - and yet one day's work in the garden and I'm all up in the Ibuprofen and heating pads!?
|Here's a candid shot of me on the way to make coffee this morning....|
I'm interspersing glorious shots of my garden here for inspiration today.
The next two days will be spent crawling around on my knees here and toiling away.
Gardening - it's such a labor of love - isn't it?
Does anyone know how much 20 yards of mulch is? Is it like a HUGE pile?
Cause that's what I've got coming, and I'm wondering if I will need help moving it.
Oh - and today I start the exercise program 30 Day Shred by Jillian Michaels.
I should be at St. Anthony's hospital no later than Wednesday evening.
Cards and calls appreciated.
|Pre-weight loss. Ok...I feel better about me today. My garden really is fabulous - it's worth the crippling.|
|Sprinklers. They are on of my favorite things in the world. I really do love gardening...no - really - I do. : -)|
Since this photo was taken, I've taken out some of these yellow daylilies - they were a bit much.
|Can't you just smell the grass and soil?|
|The Squirrel awaits!|
|Green beans mixed in with the flowers - still my favorite way to garden - every square inch filled with food or flowers.|
|My hand is stuck in this position - as it will be until November.|
|My babies from McMurray Hatchery are due to arrive on May 20th...: -)|
|A Lovely combo|
|I can't wait to stage the porch this year!|
|Raspberries and Coneflowers|
|My Happy Place|
|A lovely place to spend the last golden moments of a summer's night.|
|Serious happiness, right here.|
|So much goodness : -)|
Here's what I'll look like by Summer's end...it's what I feel like now.
Get out there today and dig!
It's good for the soul, and the body - I think - I mean - I'll let you know by the weekend.
