A new butterfly garden

The project of the day this Saturday was to plant a butterfly garden.

I worked from 10:30 until 2:00, but got it finished!!


There are three tier levels to it and it was a little hard to work with.
The finished product made it worth while though.


I know it's late to be planting, but with selling the house,
thought it would be beneficial to have something in there rather than dirt.


I like the mixture of color.
The lavender butterfly bushes in the back are so fragrant.
I hadn't even finished to second tier yet when I looked up and there was a bee and a butterfly.
I thought it was neat and I took a little break to just sit and watch them for a little bit.


It was a time consuming project but worth it.
I love to garden and flower garden.
I like to dig in the dirt.
I drank several Pepsis and there was lots of burping.
Loud burping.
But when you're working hard on something, burping is okay.



Here's the shovel, my work gloves and a load of dirt.
I ended up with this much dirt left over.
Oh well.


I got everything mulched and it started to sprinkle a bit just as I was finishing up.
It didn't rain enough though, I'm going to have to pull the hose around to the back of the house and get them watered.
