A Busy Weekend In The Garden ..

Hello my dear friends,

this past weekend has been a very busy one for me.
I had gone and bought 6 more cedars on Friday which meant I had twelve all together then. Saturday came and there I was out in our backyard digging. I actually felt like one of the seven dwarfs digging away, making new homes for the cedars.

It was hard work but I didn't give in. Even when my arms were hurting and my back was aching, I did not stop and I actually got more done then I thought I would.

I started slowly at first and half way I still thinking of how many trees to plant along the one part of our fence and decided that seven trees looked the best there.

Just under 3 hours later I was done.
Seven cedars planted ~ five still to go! ... Well, at least for the moment. I might just be tempted to go and buy a few more because you see, you can never have enough trees in this world!

It was so nice, one of my little furry critters came to visit and enjoyed a piece of apple whilst I enjoyed a glass of cold water and a short break in between planting trees.

The rest of the weekend was spent relaxing a little and of course being a little creative too, which I will share with you tomorrow.

I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day.


  1. Those cedars are going to look grand in no time at all.

  2. Your little furry visitor and his birdie friends are going to enjoy those trees just as much as you are (once, of course, you recover from your aching muscles!!).

  3. Wow, your back must have really groaned with all that digging Karen! I know mine would have, esp now as I've had a bit of a back ache for some weeks! But don't they look wonderful!? Well done you. x

  4. Well done Karen! Your trees are looking great at this place and I love your littel squirrel soooooo much!

    Hugs Ines♥

  5. You're going to enjoy the yard so much more now. Love that you planted trees - we DO need more!

    Take care of your back now, sweetie.
