Progress!



It finally feels like we're making progress in the Back 40. Justin proclaimed today that we are at the point where we can put the stone in the drainage ditches! Woohoo! I had lost patience already and started planting Itea around the proposed Patio area last week. I finished those today, and...



Planted lots of new planties in the garden formerly known as Evan's Garden. I have Heuchera "Autumn Bride," Ligularia (not sure which cultivar, but with purple foliage), Dryopteris filix-mas Undulata Robusta - Male Fern...



Plus Itea "saturnalia," and "Henry's Garnet," Aesculus parviflora Buckeye, and some other stuff, too.



Here's the Spring Veggie Garden! There's one lettuce that keeps getting nibbled.




The Azaleas are finally in bloom! About a month later than usual, but as spectacular as always.

Now, we just need to get the rain falling again. It's rained only half an inch here this month, with no more in the forecast. I'd hate for all my new plants to die, because we're headed back into a dry pattern. It would be nice to have a normal year instead of all the extremes we have been experiencing.
