I had sort of imagined us all collapsing on Monday after our busy weekend. But, the mulch arrived on Monday and we all spent the day helping to get it situated in the flower beds. The children LOVED playing in the big pile!
And here is the result of our (mostly Michael's) hard work. I have yet to go and smooth out the mulch. We finally resorted to just dumping it in piles. The garden is full of plants that came from my parents garden or a friend's garden. We were very blessed not to have to buy any perennials.
