Back Breaking Weekend

This weekend was all about yard work. Back in February, my Uncle Jay was kind enough to provide us with the hook up on plants. I'm talking Cameron's bed of his truck was full, the trailer behind his truck was full, the back seat of his truck was full, I held a plant in my lap, and Uncle Jay filled his SUV with plants, too. They sat and sat in our back yard until the weather got warmer and we could actually plant them all. Last weekend Cameron borrowed a tiller and tilled every area that plants were going to go. This weekend was all about putting those babies in the ground.

I never knew how much hard work went in to landscaping! Both yesterday morning and this morning, it hurt to walk. I honestly considered calling in to work today, but then realized all I do at work is sit in front of a computer so I decided to suck it up.

These pictures really do not do the yard justice. Some of the plants are hard to see, too, because they're so small right now.
