That's what everyone is telling me and all I read and see on the news is the north is still suffering the wrath of winter.
What snow?We in South Florida are having chilly weather but the sun is glorious. The past two days I've been cleaning and doing damage control out in the yard. This year our winter was odd indeed... It's been colder than normal and most of my plantings have suffered.
Yesterday our Home Depot had a great sale on "Red Bark Mulch" and I bought 20 bags.. they were $1.00 a bag.
Then the unthinkable happened.
I threw out my back, yep, I really hurt myself and had to give up when I had so much more to do.
I looked out from my bedroom balcony into the beautiful sunshine and wanted to cry because I could not finish, but I feel so good about how much I did get done. The weeds took over this past winter and I made some large piles for the lawn guys to take on Thursday. (Our regular day for them to spruce up the lawn. I love those guys)
As much as I love my yard, it's so much work to keep it up.
One good thing about being stuck indoors today I was able to have a good gab with my sister in Saudi on Face Time. Then a two hour phone chat with the new mommy, my daughter. Her baby is 2 weeks today and had his check up with the Dr. He and his brothers are all doing great.
Well, it's 5 in the afternoon and 55' out. Freeze warning tonight they say, wonder if I need to get out and put some sheets on my new plantings? No, I think I'll take my chances and let mother nature take over.
