I went to Lowes to buy a new handrail for the garage stairs and ended up buying some annual and perennial flowers also. I almost never leave a store without buying one or two things that I was not intending to buy, which drives BYUFan crazy.
After I got home I sent the kids inside to play while I attached the new handrail and planted my flowers. It takes longer to plant nowadays because I have to move the mulch, cut the weed barrier, plant, and then put everything back so it looks good. I just hope that the weed barrier will do its job and the mulch will help keep in the moisture so it doesn’t evaporate too quickly in our hot and windy environment.
