I need a gardening icon. Only thing is, deciding what to ditch to put one in.

Didn't mean to, but I just spent two hours putting my garden over my knee and spanking it.

Came home from mom and dad's with a bucket of fertilizer, a flat of forget-me-nots and a couple of trowels.

I fertilized both the front and back lawns, pulled all of the tall weeds out of the front.
Pulled all the chickweed out of the border along one side of the driveway.

Scraped back the dirt that's been slowly sprawling out from the base of the front hill across the sidewalk and bordered it with rocks dug from the lawn.

Planted the forget-me-nots in three different places. They should bloom before the end of spring and self-seed so that next year I can dig up and replant and thicken the border gradually. I love the look of forget-me-not borders. A solid wall of beautiful blue. Makes me shiver happily to think of my border looking that way next year.

I also dug up more dandelions than you can shake a stick at.

There's still a crap ton of work to do in this yard, but I feel /good/ dammit and burned a lot of calories doing it too. My hamstrings are telling me all about it too.

I have dirt under my fingernails, sun on my face and dandelion seeds in my hair.

Couldn't be happier.
