I'm proud to say that I did get my flower beds weeded, planted and mulched with my signature cocoa bean hulls BEFORE the party….but again it was an 11th hour-kinda thing. Usually, I am crazy to get my flowers in on Mother's Day weekend (in Michigan where I live you are a fool to put them in before than early May because Mr. Frost is sure to visit a time or two up until then). This year the warm spell we had in March that brought 80 degree temps really upset my rhythm. I knew March was too early to plant and it killed me, especially when my perennials started blooming…but I waited. By the time May came…. I was over it. But not wanting to look like the redneck neighbors with the flower beds full of weeds, I scrambled to get it all planted Wednesday night.
I made a card that really stunk. I mean it was so bad I tossed it- no point in trying to refurbish, it was that bad. Thankfully, my second attempt was much better.
