Last year I created a small flower bed under what I call the 'reading tree' in the back yard. And over the months of colder weather, weeds have grown into my bed. So today I took action, and cleared them all away.
All clear of weeds
And then I planted flower bulbs. And so the anticipation will mount as I wait for the early spring days when those bulbs will be transformed into glorious flowers.
A lovely day to weed
And the tree will no longer be lonely, as it will have green shoots of flowers growing around it's base. Just thinking about that makes me happy.
