Those of you who don't come by here don't know, but until recently I had a rather ratty yard. My kids like to run on the grass in the winter when it is cold and muddy…killing it. There was a huge swath of not-green across the yard.

Then, a neighbor kindly gave me a few square tiles. I bought a few more at Wal-Mart and set up a path where the muddy swath was. I thought of putting down grass, but my friend who mows my lawn suggested mulch.

 

Mulch is very cheap and comes in colors.

Front yard summer 2013

So, I now have a lovely looking yard. Black mulch along the path. Red on the area by the house that has some flowers plus around the Red maple. The yard looks snazzy.

 

All for about $20.00

Yes, there was a time at my alum mater where the school resigned itself to fate and paved over the dirt paths because that was where the feet went.

Looks lovely.

Just be sure to never use coco-hull mulch. It's pretty and has a pleasing scent, but pets like to eat it, and it will kill them.

Did you get the book? (It was you, right, that we owed a book to?)

Yes, I'm the one! I did receive the book and was delighted! I chuckled at your letter because I raised four children and have often lost things while cleaning! Thank you so very much!
