Yard work day


Denis has been out digging in the dirt. Spring is in the air and we have been talking about new plants that we would like to put in. We have an area planned for a rhododendron (which are classic Oregon plants) and one last rose. This area next to the chain-link fence, we have gradually trying to fill with plants that will block the view of the fence. Next on the list is transplanting our shasta daisy and adding brown-eyed susans and other similar flowers.

I pruned all the roses last weekend - ours, my mom's and the three on my brother's property. Our bulbs have all started growing the the daffodils finally have their faces open. Here are some pictures so that you can live vicariously. :o)

Awwww... Thanks! GMJ, you can read about how we met in a three part series that I posted June of last year I think... You could find it easily by searching for "internet dating" in the search box up at the top of the page.

Spring is coming here too. It's quite warm today and the snow is melting. We're just 3-4 weeks behind you.

Martha said...

Yes, we will soon be out working our gardens too. The sun is shining right now and every day those piles of snow get a little bit smaller, the patches of grass a little bit bigger. (And Teal Lake gets a little bit deeper!)

I don't garden anymore but I did buy some pink carnations at the grocery store today, so I could bring some spring inside the house. The birds sure are lovin' the warmer weather around here! I just saw about 5 different kinds of birds in my back yard just as I sitting at my computer typing this.

Denis "I have green fingers and I am cute" has been doing some great work. Robins in England an Robins in America are totally different!
