I've been putting the finishing touches on our backyard landscaping with bark mulch. It took me two days to move the huge mound from the driveway to the back flower beds. I sure was glad to have my two kids helping* me shovel all that bark.
I think summer will officially be over when the last of the landscaping is complete. Next summer I might actually sit down and enjoy it.
*for about five minutes, during a break from their intensive summer bike riding.
