I can’t say it was hard-ly any work, but I can say many hands makes for a lighter job.

Yesterday I woke early and made a fresh loaf of bread, boiled potatoes for potato salad and did up the fix-ens for a macaroni salad, planning on having egg salad sandwiches for lunch.  The day before two of my good friends asked if I could use some help in the garden and oh my gosh, I can always.  So we made plans to have a get-together working day…. I guess because most often when we get together is is a play day lately with laughing, joking and playing.

Debbie told me to take a before picture, which I thought I already had, however


this is my before picture, as you can see with plenty of flowers, shrubs, and well this was years ago.  Today the flowers are all spent because they were not divided, and I’ve lost everything to weeds.  Sorry Debbie, I didn’t have that before picture you asked for, actually this one isn’t like the before weed field we saw, right?

Here is what many hands have done yesterday


Made me a sitting spot


trimmed up trees and pulled out weeds


creating a lovely spot


Where I can sit and see my knotty tree


putting back just a few wee things


that I can see,

Thank you Blair and Debbie for helping me.

When I dragged my 4 foot arms out of the weed pulling and brush cutting, I got a surprise



My purple and red poppies have opened for a Red Hatter show.







And for my last surprise I turned to see, raspberries are ripened for you and me, come pick


Time to get breakfast on for our B&B guests.  Then off to sit in my thinking spot,

have a wonderful day.
