Pulling Out the Weeds

Most of my day today was spent in the garden. Pulling out weeds, digging in the dirt, and lifting rocks I am starting to feel the body aches already.
I can't wait for the lavender, lemon basil, cilantro, and all the other herbs I planted to sprout up. Even though I used Miracle Grow I am hoping it doesn't really take a miracle.
A bird made a nest in one of eaves and all day I saw her feeding her babies or rather heard. Swooping in with something in her mouth you would hear tons of peeps and then a swift shadow as she left to find more. All the little peeps would quiet until the next feeding.
On the agenda next weekend is making a swing for the large tree. How great to sit near the garden swinging away while working on a new project, Damien just above me on the limb reading one of his many chapter books he is fascinated with lately (rope ladder is also on that same agenda), while Aries and Odyn practice burying Buster in the sandbox.

P.S. If looking for ways to save on Miracle Grow - try these coupons for Target. They might be able to save you a little bit :)
