Sneak Peak at my Garden
So, I spent a lot of time in the garden this weekend, but there is still a lot of work to be done. Derek dug up a dead stump in the front yard. It was pretty amazing watching that thing come out of the ground, and he did it all by himself (we only have one shovel). I finished digging up the hosta jungle, and planted a bunch of plants in the front yard. I'll finish that up this weekend and then dig up the enormously ugly bush in the backyard.
There are a few surprises popping up as spring turns to summer. Moving into a new home always brings surprises, but flowery surprises are the best kind. There are several little pockets of Iris popping up and I think I see some sort of lily in the backyard. There is a negative to all the surprises, though. I never know what is actually a plant or what is a weed in the garden. I think I accidentally ripped out a bunch of daisies, but how was I supposed to know they weren't mean old weeds trying to take over my vegetable garden.
Anyways, we have a long way to go, but it is slowly starting to feel like home.
