Spring Gardening Thoughts

After cutting and weeding a couple beds then mowing the lawn doesn't it seem that:
The person that labeled gardening a "light activity"... 
Never did any!

And Earl wanted to share a quick acrostic poem today:
Spring Plantings Require Ibuprofen Nature Girl!
Um, yea, thanks Earl.

Be sure to stop to smell the flowers and have a happy day:@)

  3. Hey Earl...you're looking good in those daffodils.
    Lynn, you must hurt in places you never thought you could!
    I know I did last time I worked in the garden. :)
    Relax this evening and enjoy those flowers!

  7. Ibuprofen has become our new best friend, now that weeding season is here :) It's nice to know we're not alone.

  13. Ibuprofen gets a lot of use at my house, too! Gardening has never been a light activity in my book. =)
    Cute post!

  15. AMEN to that sister!!! I got achy just spring cleaning the deck and patio areas. I don't even want to tell you how I feel after lawn work.

  16. I have to agree with Earl. Gardening is so hard on my knees that I've gone to planting large pots!! LOL!

  18. We were in Florida all last week and it rained buckets in Illinois while we were gone. So, we came home to flowers blooming, shrubs with buds and thick, lush grass. It was gorgeous for one day. Yesterday the rain started, somewhere between 2-3 inches and this morning it was in the low 30's with flurries! It is pretty, but too cold and wet to enjoy it yet! We are going to need lots of Advil when we can finally get outside and get busy!

  19. No kidding! Last summer I would really, really ache every time after I gardened. I told hubby I am getting too old to pull weeds. I guess I just never use any of those muscles on a regular basis.

  20. Earl has reminded me that I actually need to get into shape before gardening time actually gets here. Which means it isn't here yet...which means I still have time...

  21. Cute! I agree! I did some weeding today and it just about did me in! It can be a workout!

  22. Hi Lynn and Earl,
    that remind me to have some work not already done. My garden is crying for help.
    Best greetings, Johanna

  23. Pretty daffodils! Hope the Ibuprofen helped. Time to get into gardening shape after winter. Always a challenge!

  24. Spring planting also requires Zyrtec! Lots of yellow stuff here and not daffies :)

  25. Happier than a pig in daffodils! :-) So cute, Lynn.

    I'm checking in to see if all is well in your world. I hadn't seen a post from you for a few days and got concerned. Hope you are well. Earl, too.

    XO
