Weekly Winners: Spring Has Sprung!

And so has my back! The first really long stretch of decent, sunny weather means flowers are flocking to my beds, so I have to make them cozy.

Ended up hauling 17 bags of mulch yesterday, and I still didn't have enough! But the true advent of Spring means that I can think about putting this sucker away...


Don't know if you can see in the reflection and the blinding sunlight, but that's an ice scraper in the backseat. Just in case. Now, you Dear Readers who have stuck with me all these months know that I just love to indulge in a pedicure now and again...

But Spring really means that my piggies are going into Serious Dirt Farmer Mode for the time being!

Weekly Winners are brought to you throughout the blogosphere every Sunday by Sarcastic Mom.

I'm embarrassed to admit this, but I didn't use very fancy equipment to acquire these shots. Try a Nikon CoolPix 4600, 4.0 Megapixels, 3x Zoom. The Wild One took her fancy photo equipment to college with her. She's the Artiste in the family, butofcourse!

Love the mulch. I need to get my own truck load for the yard.

The tootsie photo is funny. Have fun digging into farm mode.

Great shots - for the record I won't pack my sons' winter coats away just yet either. That would for SURE jinx us to get more snow!
