I mowed my yard yesterday. Yes. I did it — all by myself! I donned my old tennis shoes, gym shorts, tank top, sunglasses, and facemask. I got out the old push mower and set about improving my curb appeal. I’m glad it was dusk. With my not-so-hot outfit, I usually try to hide in the shadows.
Doing anything yourself certainly makes you appreciate the talents of professionals. How I long for a perfectly tended yard. I just got back from an amazing trip to Barnsley Gardens. The North Georgia Resort is designed around the ruins of an antebellum home. Cottages and gardens dot the property in neighborhood style. Check out these darling little guest houses and their perfectly manicured gardens. Even though it has been a hot August, they’re pretty pristine!
