Hard work yard work

During Spring Break I had a goal to work in the yard.

Goal achieved.

Tuesday morning I got up and in the yard by 9:30AM. It took me about 3 1/2 hours to get the all of the weeds pulled, flower pots cleaned out, hedges trimmed and Roundup sprayed.

The only part of the yard I couldn't really work in was the front flower beds. We have Azaleas planted and they are in full bloom. There is a plethora of bees and wasps. Which do not agree with me to well and I try to steer clear of them to avoid an EpiPen shot. But I did manage to spray some Roundup where it was needed so when the time comes I can pull the weeds with ease and then put down the mulch.

Here are few shots of the yard after all of the work was done.

My favorite corner

I love the terracotta pots!
Half of the blooms have already fallen off

It looks so good! What are those pink flowered shrubs? I'm seeing them everywhere right now!
