I spent a large part of the afternoon spreading mulch in some of the flower beds around the house. Not nearly done, but I did make a start.
They do look so much happier with a layer of nice mulch.
I took this picture before this pretty azalea got its mulch, but it has a nice covering over the dirt now, too. That's Carolina Jessamine on the lattice above it. Pretty flowers and very nice fragrance, too.
My Meyer lemon is blooming all over itself. We had a nice harvest last year. I'm hoping for more of the same.
Our church youth group is raising money for a trip they are taking later in the year and one of our members, a young man, harvested 200 (yes, that's right two hundred) lemons from his Meyer lemon tree. Those who chose took lemons home with them and froze the juice. We'll have a bake sale with the products of those lemons this Sunday. That's a pretty unique idea, isn't it? It should be interesting to see what everyone brings. I'm planning on lemon meringue pie myself.
These are still on my design wall. We have rain forecast for later in the week, so I'm sure I'll get some sewing in then. Until then, I'm playing outside!
Hugs and kisses,
