    Our son is graduating from high school in early June this year. I have started my lists to get the yard ship-shape in time for a graduation party. Notice how I am not even thinking about the HOUSE? And we will be having out of town house guests!?! Am I a gardener or what? We must have our priorities straight, mustn't we?

    I think you have your priorities just right Calin. My first thought would have been the garden too. After all the house shouldn't take that long to get spick and span should it? :D
    You must show us lots of pics from the graduation.

    Ain't it funny. When I have company coming over, I put in hours making sure the yard looks perfect. Inside the house? It's almost always clean... who spends time inside there anyhow? :D

    I can't even see my yard let along get into it. Really, my hubby had to take some snow off the roof and couldn't even get out to the front. The snow is deep and very crust.

    It's good you can start so early so you can be sure to get everything in tip top shape.
