Flowers of My Labor

I'll admit it. I'm not much of a gardener, but I do admire flowers so if I am to have some colorful petals to call my own, I need to spend some time with dirt under my nails. 

It has been a mulch year. You know when the weeds are starting to take over the beds and the ground is drying far to fast. With 4 yards of cedar mulch to spread, I had my work cut out for me. Weed by weed, root by root, and bed by bed, I was slowly winning the battle for the flowers. 

Now, several weeks later, a field of lilies surrounds my birdbath.
And it isn't only the flowers I appreciate. Below are columbine heads swirled in upon themselves. 

I'm just glad to have the mulch spread and the weeds under control, but it's sure nice to have some colorful flowers to reward my efforts.
