It's been a while since I've posted. We've been busy around the house, especially this spring. Blogger has changed how they upload pictures so these aren't in the order I wanted them but I don't feel like trying to change them now.
Here is the little garden underneath the dining room window. The azalea was given to us by some friends last year. We picked up the granite pavers a couple weeks ago to line the area. We found a local place where the pavers were a lot less than at Home Depot. Still need to finish putting them in. We picked up a couple of small hosta to put in here. Just waiting for some warmer days to put them in. It's been chillier lately.
Gary also planted three new blueberry bushes. Two of them look like they will make it. The third one I'm not sure if it will make it or not. I planted three little lilac shoots last fall. These were from a lilac at my parents house that Gary and Kara gave me for Mother's Day a while ago. Each shoot was only about 6 inches tall. I didn't know if they would survive the winter or not. I thought i might have moved them a little too late last fall. But they are doing good and getting lots of leaves. Hopefully they will start getting a little taller.
We have to keep reminding ourselves as we plant new stuff to remember that everything won't always be this small and not to plant too much stuff or it will all be too crowded later. We have a couple of people who are ready to give us lots of plants from their gardens. Last year we just weren't ready to plant a lot of stuff. We were busy getting rid of trees and trying to pick up all the rocks and stuff that were left over from construction.
