OK, Here are the other plants that came in the mail the other day. These are for planters for the front yard.
and two to flank the entrance to the carport. Mom thinks some creature got to this one because one of the plants looks like it got crushed. Oh well. We'll see.
There are seven bags of mulch stacked up just to the right of the planters in the photo above. Mom has to spread that around the area to the right of the driveway, where the peonies are getting ready to bloom, but that will have to wait because Mom is tired. (Gee, dunno why!)
Mom is two years into a five-year plan for redoing the landscaping of the house. Now she thinks it might be six year plan. All the plants she planted in the shade garden are doing very well, but that's because she had good dirt put in. She has lost some stuff she planted in the front yard, so she knows to fix that she has to put good dirt out there too. Still though, it's a good start. Mom has contracted an exterminator to spray the yard for ticks and mosquitoes throughout the summer, so she won't have to worry about that again this year.
Me? I'll be on the front porch.
