So now we've had a little bit of sun and I'm all excited again. I looked back through some older garden photos and realized I just can't give that up. It's simply a part of me.
Rich decided to have a landscape service put in a whole new lawn. Sure, he could have done it himself, but he's the lawn guy and if he wants to have someone else do it, then I'm not going to argue. Here are the guys out there working under the cherry tree.
By afternoon it looked like this (below), complete with LuLu and her mouthful of socks. The lawn needs to grow and green up and blend, but it will soon enough. This is the most dog-friendly way to put in a new lawn.
See the yellow azalea in the background? Two large branches were broken off the backside by a neighborhood cat trying to catch birds. Just another garden frustration. After the blooms fade I'll trim it down and hope it branches out again.
"Hello" from Doug or Dougette on the feeder which could use a good cleaning after our wet winter.
We're waiting for an estimate on another landscape project. It's definitely not something we'd tackle ourselves as it involves a retaining wall and earth moving. I'm quite excited about it. We'll extend our upper level outdoor living space significantly. I'll have to find a new home for the trillium. The stone steps will stay in place. They're one of my favorite garden features.
That's all for today. This blog had a long dry spell during our long wet winter, and then all of a sudden I'm talking your eyes off. Please click on a pic to bring them all up in a light box. It's more fun that way.
Have a happy day, and I'll catch some of you over on my stamping blog!
