With another gorgeous weekend day, Liz and I opted once more to work outside. Part of our goal was to clear up some of the junk along the driveway, as we had a lot of old bags of soil and mulch just taking up space.
After mowing the lawn, I started moving bags of mulch for Liz to spread along the fence.
As I was working in the front driveway, Liz took down a ton of knotweed near the garden boxes. She had sprayed them a week or so ago, and after allowing that chemical to seep in… pulled these guys out.
The patch between our driveway and front entrance had gotten overgrown, so I more or less just dug it all up. This technically just covers up the problem, as I’m sure there are still a ton of weeds underneath just waiting for their chance to emerge. But in the meanwhile, it looks a bit more contained.
We worked until about 7PM, fed the bunnies, and then came out for a late fire along the driveway. The mulch really makes the flowers stand out.
As we were sitting in the driveway, looking at our lawn… I pulled up some old photos of what the backyard used to look like, when we moved in. It’s such a stark difference, and hard to believe how rough it looked, before now.
