Leprechaun cupcakes for
the party--SO cute and yummy too!
I refer to "surviving" because another reason we host this party is because it forces us to do a bit of spring cleaning. We readied the yard and gardens, transplanted some perennials to new beds and brought in a few new annuals. We hauled in potting soil, fertilizer and mulch and hauled out limbs and bags (and bags and bags and bags) of weeds. We pulled out the extension ladder to clean the windows on the second story (yeah, I know...) and Haime FINALLY cleaned out his closet. Obviously a lot of what we did had nothing to do with the party, we just kinda got carried away!
After having survived getting our yard ready for the season, tomorrow I'm starting on my mother's yard. Hers is going to involve everything ours did plus much more chain saw action and much more "haul aways." You gotta love spring cleaning!
