Spring Is Here

Jose and I took advantage of the great weather and a rare day off together to do some much needed yard work. Despite waking up with yet another raging headache (my fourth this week), we actually accomplished quite a bit. Jose worked on moving some of the many, many rocks in the side yard so we can get the vegetable garden started while I weeded the front and planted a few more natives. We definitely need to go get some mulch so we can stop weeding the same spots over and over! It's looking good though and I'm going to work on planting at least a few new things each week. I'm getting excited!

Aren't these sunny days a treat? The two of you will be sore tomorrow. It looks great. The hyacinth look beautiful now. I took your yarrow advice and transplanted some of mine to the back meadow area. Hope they thrive like yours.

Ooh! You planted your ribes and grapes! So fun. And I'm totally jealous of your seedlings. I was gone all weekend and didn't get to give mine any more sun.
