Spring! #SOLC21


It's the Slice of Life challenge all month!

I'm SO excited for spring.

Sure - there will be rain and cool temperatures and mud ... lots of mud.

But I'm excited to get the garden ready for growing vegetables and native plants, trim the prairie grass, and spread some fresh mulch.

We are focusing on fixing up the backyard this year:  build a new shed, fix up the deck, and create a walkway to the shed.

I'm ready to get started!!!

Any big plans for spring at your home?


  1. I'm hoping to relandscape the front bed of our home with some different bushes flowers to brighten it up! I don't have much of a green thumb though so we'll see how it goes!

  2. I admit that I always have lots of plans when spring hits. Trouble is I also often put them off and the things I hope to get done don't. Maybe this year will be different.
