It all started on a Saturday morning when I got back from running errands in town. The sun was shining and it wasn't too cold out, somewhere around 8 degrees. Dan was working on the rally car in the garage and I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to tackle my sad mangled flower gardens. After bringing the groceries in and getting bundled to work outside, I came out to this. My hard working husband (and attentive dog).
As he continued to work in the garage, I started on our side flower garden. It was looking the saddest with all the dead hostas and it didn't help that it was right beside our house and viewed on a daily basis.
|Pretty sad eh?|
The other gardens were also looking quite battered but I honestly don't have much hope for them. You see, I have this dog named Mia.... If you are a dog owner, you probably know where this story is going. She likes to run through the gardens, sit in the gardens, drag sticks and logs into the gardens, etc.

I am pleased with the results of my hard work though. And I think the gardens look at least 10 times better. Plus, it will hopefully make spring time a bit easier. Maybe next year will be the year I really tackle the flower gardens?
