We finally got to work on this problem garden, (for me anyway) on Saturday, 21 april. ALL day! Actually I think it turned out ok, not much different from last year, but I was impatient and didn't know what to do to make it easier. Well , nature took its course, and everything came up as it was supposed to.
Once I got over the horror of moving some stuff and just covering over some other stuff, (like itsy bitsy alyssum seedlings popping up) I realized there is plenty there to give me pleasure still. Hubs pulled out the plastic edging, and put in some nice brick edgers.Put the blue pots in an arrangement of some sort, which is ok for me.And then we went to the store to get something, and yes, I did it again! I bought and bought and bought...so now we have much more planting to do! So many pretties to bring home.new hostas! yaayy!
I saw a horrible thing tho , Tuesday morning at HD..the vendors were there with a new load of plants, and I saw shopping carts of older plants being hauled away! I had to contain myself to not run after them and scream ..no , no,. no....
Anyway I appreciate all the input on the other thread, you guys are great and so encouraging! thanks for being on Hometalk!
The first few pictures are as we started...now looking at it..looks overwhelming to me. How did we ever get it all done? last year at this time, i was useless, since 5bypass in October I am more "useful" now, so was able to help hubs! He is so cool, and good to me!

Poor crabapple,just beginning to bloom, this is just BEFORE the thunderstorm that took about half of the blossoms off, and the rest are looking so sad. I wonder if premature blossom removal will hinder the crabapples growing. The robins love them in the spring after winter is over. That's all!

    Love the photo of your husband with the tree. Too funny. I also like the little rock family.

    Looks like you did an amazing, job although wondering how your muscles are feeling today. What's the problem with the pots that you mentioned?
  • Sherrie S Sherrie S on Apr 28, 2012
    You and hubby deserve a break today for a beautiful job. Makes we want to get out and fix up my yard.

    ha! Thanks kids...going at it again today, to take care of the plants I (sigh) overbought the other day. Yes muscles let us know we arenot spring chicks anymore. @ Kate, the pots were a problem as to how to arrange them. but now they are ok. Just have to fill them in now with more plants, oust the hens and chicks.Before , they were just in a line, not a "design"...
