I took advantage of no rain these last few days to put a border along my vegetable garden in order to make it easier to mow the grass. I used some old cement bricks and I need about 7 more.

I used landscape fabric under and lay the brick on top. It's not professionally done but it suite me fine.
Here hubby is picking dandelions

My hubby picked wheelbarrow full of dandelions and mowed the lawn for me today as I was working on my border.

I just thought that you may want to go over to Millie's Mats to wish KIM Happy Birthday today.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY KIM. I hope that you have a great day. I know that you have been celebrating all weekend and just continue celebrating with your blogger friends.  Cheers,  Hugs.

It's raining cats and dogs this morning and I'm late for work but I thought that I would post early for Kim's birthday.
Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.


  1. What a lovely garden Julia! Your dirt is so black and there must be some good nutrients in it to grow all your wonderful blooms!
    It's nice to see your hubby picking all those dandelions! It keeps mine busy to as well as a few of the neighbor guys! Some spray chemicals which we try not to!
    Thanks for the heads up on Kim's birthday!
