Remember This? ~ This Is Now This! ~ Shameful!

Around the middle of spring my backyard looked like this. It was waiting on nothing but green grass and more flowers in bloom?

These are flower beds one, two, and three. The beds were ready for just about anything. All I had to do was to go get it and plant it. Then blogging became pretty much an all day pass time to me. And passed time was what it did. Sure I found time for inside work, that's a must. But there was absolutely no time for outside work. Then I blamed it on the heat. "It's too hot! In the pass, I would get up at the crack of dawn before the sun came out to get my outside work done. It was a passion of mine! Now I only procrastinate and watch my backyard and a few other things go untouched. Well today is the start of a new day! I just can't keep up with everything and "Somethings Got To Give" Look! Just Look! what I've allowed to happen.

This is flower bed one. I needs weeding and edging, it's my husbands job to edge them but, since I hadn't seemed to care I guess he didn't either.

This is flower bed two. A mess!

This is the fourth bed, right in front of the screened porch area. A double mess! I never did put down pine straw, therefore the weeds just had their way. This picture is after I went out there Monday evening and pull a few weeds but there is still a large patch, and I need to move some things around that the elephant ears have hidden, and get straw down. There are also other areas outside that need my attention. My garage looks the same as I have been saying that I was going to get it cleaned out and have a yard sale to get some of this junk out of the house and so far it's only been a thought. Closets need attention too. Although I love blogging ladies and gents, I must take some significant time off to get my house in order. I decided that until I get these things done I will only post or visit on Friday's. I will be missing all of you but, this must be done. Deb
