Remember the free mulch?

The end of April, I woke up to find this gift in my side yard.

Yesterday, I decided it had sat (cooked, composted) long enough for me to get started using it.

So I mulched the flower bed on the South Side of the building:

And also the bed on the North side of the building. One day I hope the evergreen is big enough to hide those pretty electric meters (back/left side of pic). The peonies do a good job in the warm months to hide the gas meter (front/right side of pic). And look at that pretty corn in the backyard. I can't wait!

And alas, I was WORN out and just couldn't go on. I did make a dent in the pile, but it sure doesn't look like it in this picture!

And I'm sure you were exhausted! But the gardens look really nice.

Wow! You are one glutton for punishment, aren't you? That's a lot of work to do that.
Looks nice!

Who can pass up free mulch? The gardens look wonderful. If you don't want/need anymore of it, I bet a sign beside it saying free mulch would make it disappear in no time. :-)
