WIP Sunday: The Epic Battle Has Begun!

It is time. Each summer I begin my epic battle. Me vs. Weeds. The Hubby and I try to maintain a weed free yard. It really doesn't happen, but we set out to try just the same. With a couple days off the Hubby managed to almost rid the front yard of the nasties. I had four whole hours off and helped clean out another couple of beds. I stayed outside planting until late last night (10 pm and it was still light!). The front yard is almost complete! I have a few more things to plant in my shade bed.

Meet my Master Commander. I put this little guy in charge. He has rounded up the gnome troops and promised his service in keeping my yard weed free!

I snapped a photo of just a small, wee portion of the front beds. I just thought it looked so nice! There are lots more beds that look wonderfully weed free (for now). Oh, you can also see Merlin peeping from his favorite window seat in the pic too.
So It Begins

We'll be suiting up for the battle in the back yard soon. It got away from us last year thanks to neighbors that don't take care of their yard. Aaron has sprayed weeds and we will be tilling a couple beds to start from scratch. I'll do one big blog post of the complete yard when it is all finished! Crafting on hold while I fight the good fight!

Awwww! Hugs to Merlin peeping in the window! The front bed looks great! Congrats on tackling such a task. I would think you would be sick of flowers and dirt by now :P

That hanging basket is so pretty. Weeds are the enemy and they are EVIL! I love your little gnome.

Thank you Pam! I planted it myself! Way back in March! In the greenhouse of course. ;)
