Family Affair

It was beautiful here in Northern Michigan this afternoon. Sunny, warm, and perfect for spending some time outside. Everyone got in on the action. Grandma dug holes faster than I could fill them with tulip and daffodil bulbs, while Papa and the kids raked leaves. We also cut back all the perennials, mulched the roses, and raked out all the flower beds. My back is a bit achy tonight but it sure feels good to have that all done. Winter is welcome to stop by any time now. What are you up to this weekend?

We got ready for winter too. We got our corn for the corn stove and also wood pellets. Bring on the cold! Tomorrow is clean up time.

I love the little rake photo, reminds me of Goldilocks and the three bears with a size just right for everyone!

How funny that you are planting your tulips while ours are flowering! The roses have started blooming this week too.
