Curb Appeal

Today I worked on a little curb appeal by weeding and cleaning up the flowerbed that lines the driveway...

Tomorrow I plan to dig up some of the plants in that bed that I don't like and plant more plants that I do like. I'm able to have the net fence down while I work  because I've fenced the ducks out of this particular half of the garden....

 They helped me earlier in the season by eating most of the slugs, but lately they have just been a nuisance!

Mr. Adams even helped out by weedeating the dandelions down by the road....

Oh, dear.........


  1. wow - you leave the country for a few weeks - return to Wa La - and your ready to sell! You got some great green thumb elves working with you.

  2. Yep, everyone should have a little army of elves working for them!
