I have been waiting for this day for several weeks-when the pansies arrive at the garden center and the temperatures get cool enough that they will do well in the gardens.
I went this morning and bought 9 flats each holding 18 plants of pansies! Then when I got home a little before noon I went looking for help to plant. Well, I was in hopes of getting at least 4 more helpers but had to settle for 2. We worked for nearly 3 hours planting and weeding and trimming but the gardens are coming together for our winter planting.
Next week I will go and get another bunch and we will all get together and finish the planting and then I will post new pictures of the gardens.
I know this isn't exactly exercise but it sure worked the back muscles and did a lot of walking back and forth getting plants and hauling out the weeds and trimming. The weather was just beautiful too.
I hope all of you have a little sunshine in you life this week and can get out and smell the "roses" or in this case, pansies!
