So, this past Sunday, we were blessed in Northeast Ohio with a GORGEOUS 70+ degree day. Anyone who is from a snow region knows…these days are the best thing ever.
Next to winning a million bucks or being Lorelai Gilmore (only because she can eat whatever she wants and stays skinny!) that is.
It started out super cold, but quickly it turned out to be glorious. I couldn’t wait. I geared up and headed out to start my list of outdoor work.
It was wonderful.
I got the rhubarb garden cleaned out and re-edged with a new rock border. Speaking of which….does anyone grow rhubarb? I inherited this patch and I have no idea how old it is, or the care that it hasn’t received over the years. Any suggestions on what I should do at this point? Or just let it grow and see how it goes this season? Heck, I don’t even know if I like rhubarb.
I’m also super excited because I was able to start laying out the new patio! Granted, I probably won’t be able to work on it again until Summer Break, but that’s ok right? A start is a start.
When it’s all completed, it will be lined with pieces of sandstone from the farm with pea gravel in the center. There will also be a couple of steps up to it and will be surrounded by flowerbeds. Part of the reason that this is so exciting to me is because I am starting to transplant perennials this week, so I wanted to make sure I had a place to put them.
FYI….Sandstone is SUPER heavy. Those were the only pieces I could move, the rest will be moved with a tractor! I’m a hard worker, but not stupid.
I also worked on some overall yard clean-up with my trusty 80 year old wheel barrow. I’m so glad it was a productive day in the yard. Granted, I couldn’t move the next day. But it was so worth it.
Heck, even my two trusty mutts loved the weather!
So, until next time. Be kind. Read a chapter in a book. I’m currently reading Wind and the Willows, what about you?
Peace out peeps.
