I have been a busy little bee planting bulbs and remulching our front yard. It took me weeks to pull up the beds along the sidewalk that were full of weeds. They are now filled with rows of pink tulips that I hope will come up next spring!
In Tennessee a lot of my neighbors used black mulch and I loved it. Here no one uses it. I thought it would make a great contrast with the the green against a brown house. Instead of brown mulch against a brown house. (this state loves the color brown!)
I am almost done getting all the front covered. My neighbor came by yesterday and asked me the funniest question. She said, "I always see you in your garage paining. I have never seen black mulch before, did you spray paint it?"
I thought this was so funny. My poor neighbors must just think I am crazy. I do think she was happy to know it was at Home Depot and she thought about putting it in too. She must be relieved to know she does not have to spay paint mulch to get the look!
