Regardless, it is past time to "show and tell" something, so here are some photos of spring progress in the yard.
We did a little repair work on the garden shed. If you recall, from an earlier post, we damaged the roof when we took part of the tree down.
|We fixed the damage and replaced some shingles.|
The Day Lilies are on the east side of the house and love the early morning sun. They seem to grow every day. I shared some with Karli early this spring.

Our flowering crabapple tree is so beautiful in the Spring. But it only blooms for a short time. Enjoy the pink while you can, I guess.
|Close-up of the pink flowers. Too bad the pink goes away so quickly.|
As for annuals, I like to keep the colors all unified. This year I only purchased orange marigolds. I planted some in the beds among the rocks and sedum. Here are some views of the yard so far......
|Sedum, orange marigolds, mountain sage.|
I also plant some of the same orange marigolds in various pots.
|This should fill out soon.|
|On the back deck I included some pots of basil and parsley. Karli has been trying to get me to cook with "real fresh" herbs!|
I love summertime and spending time in the yard. I love my flowers! They will grow more beautiful each day. But, by the end of August, I'll be over it and wishing my watering and mowing was done! Go figure!!
