Flowerbed Clean Up.....

 My gosh, this is but a wee start on our outside work. Ted and I will try to get most of it finished today, before the rains come in. You can see the stakes I had around the mums, they were so bushy last year.
There's a pile of debris from a bush we cut out. We'll haul that away today. I want to soak and clean some of the bird feeders also.
 What is it about work that absolutely fascinates people??? When Ted and I would do any work in town...someone would always stop to talk. Well you can't get much done when that happens. Yesterday a  fellow from down the road pulled into the drive, got out and wanted to talk...yikes. We barely know him, nice guy and all.....but come on, we are working here, or trying. LOL. Oh well maybe we will finish up today. Enjoy your weekend. xoxo


  1. It's looking good so far, Susie. I know- every once in a while when I am working outside someone will pull in to chat....not only does it stop me from working I am also usually a hot mess and don't want anyone to see me either! xo Diana

  2. Hooray for Spring Cleanup!!

    Not so much Hooray, for people who want to chat, and interrupt your work.

    Me, I'd stop a minute and talk to him. Then go right back to cleaning up... Nodding my head now and then, at what he said. -chuckle-

  3. oh gosh use those moments to make new friends! the work will wait...

    hugs, bee

  4. Looks great Susie. Can't wait to see the results. Why don't you hand the next people who stop to chat gardening tools. Either they will help or they will leave!

  5. Happy Saturday to you, Susie. I hope you are enjoying this day working outside. We have sunshine here, with the prediction of high temperatures near 70 today.

    xo Nellie

  6. You are so energetic Susie. I miss having flower beds and a garden.

  7. Hi Susie, just finished my yard Spring clean up. Such a good feeling. Oh I still have some of my yard art to give a good wash down but all the debris is finally cleaned up. I think I worked on it four different days. Hubby and I took it to the land fill this moring. spring is alot of work, but so worth it when the garden is full of beauty. I think your neighbor just didn't want you to get more done than him. lol!

  8. Love to see spring around the country. We're getting flowers for the beds in front of our building next week. Hope you're having a great weekend.

  9. AT least it's nice that you guys are so popular!!

    I'm with Auntie.....I keep working and nod! Sometimes they actually start pitching in and helping!

  10. I love living in a town where the neighbors stop by. I planted some pansies today, here come spring!
