I’ve been doing as much work as I can manage, and I’ve been getting a lot of contractions for it! Remember – this is good because I’m full term now and the more work my body does now, the less it has to do later. 🙂
So today I dug a large hole and planted a really heavy shrub all by myself. I probably should have waited for J to get home, but I just couldn’t! I really wanted to see what it would look like in our front yard.
Some friends of ours from church, John and Sarita, were wanting to find a good home for this shrub since they were replacing it with something new. I said I’d take it because we have an empty flower bed in front of the house that needs something big and sun-loving in the far corner of it. We picked it up on Monday, but because of the snow that evening and all day Tuesday, I couldn’t even get out to dig a hole to put it in. The poor thing has been sitting on our garage floor and hasn’t had any water since John and Sarita dug it out this weekend. I was going to put it in a bucket but it was too big to fit in there.
So anyway, like I said, I dug the hole today. And once that was done there was no turning back. So I drug it over by myself (and this thing is HEAVY!) and maneuvered it into the hole, then drowned it with water. I think it looks great! Apparently so does Mother Nature because we already have a little spider working its way from the pine tree to the shrub and it’s only been planted for about an hour. 🙂
And here are the photos!
I’m expecting that tonight I’ll have a good amount of contracting going on. Whoop!
