How Does Your Garden Grow?

We spent a LOT of time outside this week working in the yard. We had some flower beds which were clay rather than dirt, so Jerry dug out the hard as rock clay and we replaced it with flower friendly dirt. Then the kids help me plant flowers and spread mulch. It was a dirty job which lasted about 4 evenings, but was fun.

The 1st evening was the hardest for Jerry because that was the night of the most shovel work... digging out the clay. He worked himself until he just couldn't work anymore and he was exhausted.  As we were going in for the night, one of the kids asked, "Daddy, did you have fun playing outside today?"  Ahhh, the innocence of youth.  What was hard yard work for one was playing outside for someone else.
