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
