Our picks, maybe not all so green, but colour is always good.
Motivated and started digging, things are coming together.
Some WIP, and current comparison pictures...the entire back of the house last fall, building the pea gravel patio
Added a "Parisian Balcony" and slide in March.
The past few weeks work has been focused on that stumpless corner and opening (will have to take a full rear house picture). I planted some bleeding hearts and lily of the valley on the north side of house, beyond the temporary gate. Placed a couple huge stepping stones under the temporary gate. I need a few more large stones, which will lead into the dry stream bed. And last night, the shade tree (for the bleeding hearts) and shrubs for the layered corner.
I also picked up a rose for another corner of the house. Last year there was a dead rotted bush, Stump Crusher cleared that out too.
There is still lots to do, including calling in stump crusher again (a few clumps growing in the side fence), replacing fence and most pressing, getting a new spade ...
I survived a scratch to my collar bone. Luckily the shovel didn't snap into my face. The other plants, hopefully will survive a few days in their pots.
