First Mulch of the Year

Because today was so warm, I decided to mulch a couple of flower beds. Usually this is a chore I do in late March, not late January.

I'd been coveting the great-looking mulch at Gardner's for over a week, so we hitched the trailer to the truck and headed down Route 40. The trailer holds two scoops.

A curious critter came out to see us.

Soon the second scoop was loaded.

I decided to do the two beds on either side of the driveway.

This flower bed looked pathetic and was badly in need of mulch.

So was this one on the opposite side of the driveway.

See what a difference a little mulch makes?

I also partially mulched the other flower bed, but I was too tired to take a picture. Plus I ran out of mulch.

Maybe later.
