Backyard Progress

My aunt and uncle came to visit and brought with them a multitude of plants to help “personalize” the outside of the house.  Naturally, Mike and I have gotten pretty inspired and have been working the last few days on the backyard.

Despite the lack of grass, it’s starting to shape up pretty well.

Mike and I worked on this for an entire afternoon and there’s still more to go!

Still – not too bad looking.  I transplanted oregano, cilantro and lavender in between the hostas.

On the agenda for the rest of the weekend: finish up the right side of the yard.

Anna,

Looking good! Poor Patrick - first he has to do his own grocery shopping and now he has to plant the garden!!!
