It’s that time of year (again), one we dread and put off for days, sometimes months: Gardening!
It’s a long weekend for us and we didn’t have any plans, and when the weather report of rain all weekend long turned into sunshine out of no where, we took that as a sign to get some outside chores done. Neither of us have a green thumb, and when it comes to gardening, we usually let the pros take over. (Daniel’s dad is an avid gardener and helped us tremendously last year.) However, this year, he wasn’t available.
So Daniel and Bryce started to dig up our garden of weeds and see what survived the Vancouver winter and assess the situation. It turns out that the flowers we got last year were mostly perennials which means they have a short life span, so we headed to Walmart again and picked up a bunch of colourful annuals and a couple of rose bushes.
Bryce was in charge of adding top soil to all the new plants. It was the cleanest job we could give him as he’s not a big fan of getting dirty but we wanted to involve him as much as he could handle. He was very helpful and had a smile on the whole day.
We also wanted Bryce to have an area of our garden that would be all his and he could take care of it himself. When we were at Walmart we picked up a couple more flower pots and Bryce picked out his own flowers. It’s Bryce little garden.
Daniel can’t help but laugh at what our garden looked like before, and what it looks like now. It’s a huge improvement don’t you think?
