Itching for spring


So…I have my work cut out for me. Last summer, my sister came over to help me do some yard work, and we never quite finished with the “mundane” projects to get the yard ready for this upcoming spring. Can I say how lucky I am to have a sister that will come over to do yardwork?

My house was a short sale and sat on the market for a good 6 months or so before I was able to move in. What does that mean? It means weeds took over the entire yard, plants have grown between every crack and crevice of the patio rocks that trail around my backyard, and weed roots that burrow feet of length below the ground (yes, I said FEET!) . Yikes.

With that said, I am getting sooo antsy to start doing yardwork and get my backyard ready to enjoy for the sunny months in Portland! I love spending time outdoors, and I want to start a pretty epic garden. Well, epic for me. I have an interesting relationship with plants. I love them, but would benefit from learning how to take care of them properly. That’s the nicest way to put it.

So I am a little quite a bit intimidated about the process, but ready to take it on. I still have a LOT of prep work to do (yard party, anyone?). But I think I’ll enjoy some sunny days outdoors in the yard, regardless of what I am doing. Are you ready for the sunshine?

    I cringe just looking at that but it will be worth it! I’ve always loved gardens but I have no green thumb whatsoever.

      haha I’m in the same boat! We will see how my (not-yet-existing) garden will do this spring. I love them so much too, I am seeing if that love will override my black thumbs. Here’s to hoping!
