Thankful Thursday In the Garden

Mom has been working outside in the garden.

She had an azalea bush, HAD, the last one
in the flower beds around the house.
Several years ago she & Dad removed
all the shrubs around the house because of
maintenance reasons, she is so glad of that.
But, there was one stubborn azalea that would 
not come out.
Well, over the winter it gave up the ghost.
So with a handy ax & pruners, Mom got it 
down to ground level.
We were hoping Candid Camera was around
so everyone could have laughed as hard as
we did with Mom using that ax.

Since it is impossible to remove the dead roots,
second best option was a planter filled with 
pretty flowers.
That was another Candid Camera moment.
As Mom had to move the flower container
which is pretty large and already filled with dirt
into place, but she did.
She was pleased with the results.

Good job Mom,
I'm just amazed at what I saw!
And that is our thankful post this week
from the Garden.

    Good that your mom entertained you Annabelle, while she worked in the garden ;)
