It Takes Sweat and Bug Bites

That is not a very eloquent title.

But it is so true.


I think I need stock in Benadryl Anti-Itch Cream lately.

 It's definitely my friend.

We've been working and adding to the flower beds.

Moving, changing, replanting.



I'm willing and so is the love of my life.
It takes a lot of sweating and itching...


Day by day.


To achieve our goals in the garden.

In life too....right?

  2. Stacey,
    I think you hit the nail on the head! That is the very reason I do not like gardening! Every time I even attempt it I get bug bit or poison ivy-ed up. I've given it up as a bad job.LOL!

    Of course, you're welcome to post about my post. That's called Link Love, and we all love it. Thanks so much for reading my little garden blog. I have bug bites too btw. Loads of them. The flies seem especially vicious this year.~~Dee

  5. What we see from your pictures is so pretty...gardening is hard work...and it is an on-going type. But to see the beautiful flowers, etc makes it so worth it in the long run. Now if we would just get some rain.

  21. Having recently moved into a new house - working to the garden has not been a priority - but I am looking to tending with care in the future. So wonderful to see the blooms of your labor. Lovely
