Join the Garden Party (Week Two)

I can't believe four weeks have already passed since I started working on the garden.  This year I wanted to get a head start and came up with a list that I was going to attack one baby step at a time - Flylady style.  (My complete to-do list is here Down the Garden Path).

Last time I posted it was still chilly outside so I was working on jobs like cleaning the deck - see Join the Garden Party (Week One).  Since then, I've given the lawn it's first and second mowing - or 'lawnmothering' as I like to call it! :D

DD9 has planted a few seeds, using the cheat's version from Ikea...  We're hoping to see lots of sweet peas, evening sunflowers and bog standard sunflowers popping their little heads up in the very near future.  And hopefully we should be able to plant them out in the garden by the end of this month.

The sun and heat made a sudden return to Denmark two weeks ago.  Meaning there was also a sudden return of weeds along our fence on the pavement - eek!  But one 15 minute session with a little trowel and a pair of purple gardening gloves and - voilà - we're already looking better!

We have three of these green wheelie bins for garden refuse.
The council empties them once a fortnight.
And after all that hard work, I finally got my 'reward'.  A 15 minute stint with my favourite weapon of gas-driven weed burner.  Yeargh! ;D

What's next? Hmm, tune in next week for an update...  And if it's lovely and sunny where you are, why don't you relax outside and enjoy your efforts with one of these?

Bottoms up!

Have a marvelous Monday! :)
