I also planted a new garden near my patio. I bought a dogwood tree on Friday and some other plants and finally put them in a new garden bed. I don't know about my other MD neighbors - but my yard is nothing but rocks and clay. It is virtually impossible to dig in my dirt! I had to use a pick ax to get a hole even close to big enough for my tree. I imagine I was quite the site - covered in mud and swinging a pick ax like a lumberjack! Hehe!
But - it's all worth it in the end.
I still have to add a few more plants and mulch over everything. I am also going to add a stone border around it all. I'm pleased with the progress so far.
Here are some of my new babies:
My new dogwood tree:
The rest of my yard is in bloom too!
I love the color of these tulips...
My magnolia tree is still blooming.
I love these purple/blue flowers on my Trevi Fountain This picture kind of reminds me of the water falling in the actual Trevi Fountain in Rome...
There was also some knitting accomplished this weekend. I am onto the sleeves of my Central Park Hoodie. Slow and steady - I can't wait for this project to be finished! I'm getting very excited!
