Egg-stra cute yard decor...

The Spring yard update is finished! It is so crazy to watch how awful our flowerbeds look all winter long, but there is no way I am going to go out there every winter and pick all the weeds and junk. It is just a never ending battle. So we let it grow, and then do a big clean up once Spring arrives. Makes it so much easier to maintain.

Anyway, yesterday I posted pics of the finished product and was thinking about adding just a couple of things to make it Easter Special. My mom had these big eggs in her yard a couple of years back and wasn't going to use them. So I stole, er, borrowed them.

Now I remember the year that she had them, they rolled everywhere and would pop open. She taped them shut....but this year....
I weighed them down with a few extra landscaping rocks and now they don't they don't pop open.

We have enough rocks to spare, but if we didn't....I would have weighed them down with bags of beans, lentils, rice etc.
We are ready for Easter!

BTW, please excuse the trash bags in the picture. It's not time to put out our big trash so there it sits....
