We bought 2 forsythia bushes (yellow bells), a lavender plant, a yellow broom plant (may not be the official name but the flowers were pretty), another butterfly bush, cucumbers, peppers, onion sets, tomatoes (3 kinds), a honey crisp apple tree, a dahlia plant, some "polka dot" plants, yellow squash, zuchinni, marigolds, some seeds, and 2 new brightly colored pots.
We took off last weekend from helping at the ceramic shop to take care of our yard and get some "farming" done. It took Greg quite a while to fix the John Deere but he was successful and got the front and back yard cut. It looks so nice now! And I got my hands really dirty and planted lots.
Over the fall/winter, I had set all my pots inside my garden boxes so that Rosie didn't destroy them all. With the lattice framing the top of all the boxes, she wasn't able to get to the pots. When I cleaned everything out on Sat., I was about to dump a pot and discovered it had a quite healthy rose bush growing in it ~ I have no idea where this came from but I planted it in the yard anyway! Here are some pictures of springtime in our yard ~
