These Beds are causing me Pain!

Whose idea was it anyways, to redo the flower beds here at the Pollard casa?   Sam says it was me......but surely I would have never suggested this.......knowing full well, that there is a whole lot of hard work in this kind of work.

Tyler, helped me yesterday afternoon but I had much more to get done today.   Looks like I will even have more to do sometime.....MONDAY!

Not only did this job consist of replacing the shrubs and flowers, but it also included digging out all of the old dirt {about a foot deep} and filling the beds back up with GOOD fertile soil.  

Needless to say.....last night was one of those moaning kind of nights!!!  LOL....   Not the kind of moaning that one might think!!

I do believe that every single ounce of fat, along with every muscle and bone in my body, was screaming for help!   I'm thinking that someone must have replaced all the Motrin in the bottle, with M&M's.     The Motrin did not work at all...

Finally, around 4:30 this morning, I grabbed the heating pad.      Yay!!  a little relief.  

What did I do this morning?   I got dressed and headed right  back over to the Nursery to buy more plants!!

What was I thinking?   Sam and I worked all afternoon in the!!   The flower beds look nice!!

Hopefully, I'll be able to rest tonight without any pain!!   

I  haven't had time to take pictures.....maybe tomorrow!!

Have a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend....  Be safe, and don't forget to pray for our Military!!



  1. Shug, you are a girl after my own heart, with your out of control love of greenery and flowers. Try not to overdo!

  2. so sorry to hear your back is giving you trouble, if you fill a nice warm bath with one cup of Epsom salts after gardening it relaxes the muscles, then go to bed, it does help, can't wait to see the photos! Of the flowers, not the bath, lol!!!!!

  3. I know all the hard work will be beautiful and it will be worth it! Considering your awesome decorating skills, I can't wait to see what you do outside!! This header house is amazing! Two levels of porches,all those hanging ferns, the awesome end where it rounds off. Is it near you?

  4. Oh, I feel your pain! Yard work is the all time worse for sure! But, just think how nice it's going to look when you get through. Happy weekend!

  5. Ouch! Hope you can now relax and enjoy those new plantings.

  6. Enjoy but take frequent breaks.
    Looking forward to your pictures.

    Happy holiday weekend.

  7. Sounds like a massive job but oh-- it will be glorious when it's all done.

  8. Hi, You really did take on a HUGE project. Bless your heart. Hope you feel MUCH better today.

    Happy Memorial Day to you and yours... Let's never forget those men and women (past and present) who were/are in the Armed Forces and have done so much to give us the FREEDOM we have today. God Bless ALL of them and God Bless the USA.
