This week, we took out a corner of our icky crab grass and rock and replaced it with mulch and put in a crabapple tree. A crabapple tree so small, you can barely even see it in this picture. This will rid our use of at least one sprinkler head.
That plot of ground looked so big, until you see it from the front of the house and it looks like a tiny little speck back there behind the evergreen tree. I think our lawn conversion is going to take a long time.
We also planted two lilac bushes. Hooray! That's them there along the fence. I can't wait till they're huge! I'm learning that gardening is not an instant-gratification game.
Then we also had dug up all the rocks and the dead juniper in this plot under our window, and tonight we planted a bunch of little plants here that will hopefully one day be big and flowery.
And this is why i haven't had time to blog.
