Busy Little Bee

We had a busy weekend with more birthday celebrations (my mom this time), some shopping with the ladies, typical errands, and lots of yard prep. It's hard to believe I'm already cutting back raspberry canes and planting mums. Seems barely a few weeks ago we were ankle deep in raspberries and garden tomatoes. Well, we still have tomatoes, bell peppers, and herbs, at least. Still, it seems that the summers are never long enough. Could be that Michigan weather. Could be there just never is enough time to do the things we thought we would do before the summer ended... not that it's over yet!
We're lucky to have a little helper for outdoor work, too. She may be small, but she takes her 'work' seriously whether it be pulling weeds, raking, picking up slugs (yup, try finding a bug or critter she won't pick up), harvesting, planting, pruning, etc, she is all in! Hey, I'll take all the help I can get!
