This past weekend was beautiful. The sun was shining and temperatures reached into the upper 90's. We took full advantage to get some yard work done around the pool. Flowers are blooming and looking really pretty.
Because of the bright sun we set up a shade canopy for the girls to retreat under when necessary. While they played with their bubbles Kevin and I began to take care of the weeds and plants that were getting a bit out of hand. We'll need to keep at this to really see the progress we want, but we're off to a good start for this season. Cameron was off playing baseball with a group of friends so he managed to get out of this yard work session. We let him know we've saved more for his help the next time : )
We decided to let the chickens on the pool side of the fence to help with bugs and weed control in some of the planter beds around the pool. Took a bit of coaxing to get them out of "their" yard, but once over they loved scratching and picking at bugs and plants. Will have to do this a bit more when we're out there working.
