This is my swing. My poor, sad, dilapidated swing. I love my swing. It is my special place in my backyard where I sit and glide lazily back and forth as my children run and play. It is where I have cuddled children and read them stories, it is where popsicles are eaten, and where I have fallen sound asleep on many a warm afternoon whilst being pregnant and exhausted. I love my swing.
So, inspired by a wonderful sale at Home Depot a couple of weeks ago, I decided to give my swing some special spring TLC!
- 8 bags of mulch: $13
- 1 roll of landscaping fabric: $5
- 6 flowers: $3.50
- 2 new pillows (splurge!): $16
- 3 hours of sweat and hard labor on a Monday morning: exhausting
- beautiful swing: PRICELESS!
A look at the new mulch and flowers (snapdragons and petunias, I believe).
See how happy and contented I am? Yay for spring! Yay for Earth Day! And yay for really good deals on mulch and flowers!! :-)
Have you been busy in your garden or yard? What projects have you been working on, or do you hope to work on this spring?
