I don’t know what it is about bark…. but man oh man it sure makes me happy.
We had a very loooooong and wet winter. It was depressing. Even for someone who has lived in Western Washington practically their entire life. Getting outside to do ANYTHING was a bit of a struggle with grey skies and rain looming overhead practically everyday. But with the nice weather we’ve been having lately… I think we’ve turned a corner.
On sunday I had the boys pick up 2 yards of bark. Or mulch as some people call it.
The piles of orange goodness all over the backyard brought a smile to my face.
And to Pinky and the girls as well. I mean look at them. Sure a sandy beach in Florida would be nice, but hey a patch of bark in my backyard is pretty cool too when you’ve got steel legs and a plastic molded body. Don’t you think they compliment the oregano well?
The bark just makes everything in the garden POP. Once the lavender, hydrangeas and shasta daisy plants start blooming it will look spectacular.
Oh, and that empty space behind the garden boxes… anyone care to guess what I’ll be putting there? It has something to do with my goal #2 for 2017. 😉 It should be arriving later this week and I can’t wait to tell you all about it!!!
Have a great tuesday everyone, enjoy the sunshine.
