Fresh mulch, new pittosporum shrubs (to replace dead ones), and on-the-verge azaleas... along with a few pansies. Spring is ALMOST HERE!!
I still have to trim up my poor rosemary... it has some unattractive dead spots. I'm a little worried it is too shaded for the rosemary to thrive in this spot. Still, I love its scent by the front door. The pansies will be replaced as soon as all frost possibilities are past. Overall our front yard is starting to look pretty good, especially considering where it started. The back... it is still in nightmare phase. LOL! I DO have ideas for it. ;)
Note to self (and others): Be very careful where you get down on your hands and knees (I was looking for a golf ball that went into a row of hedges... if you can find your ball, no penalty stroke; if you can't, one stroke penalty). My knee was solid black with ants in just seconds and I received these bites in spite of some VERY frantic swatting/wiping away. NOT worth the attempt to save that stroke! ha!
Isn't that the truth? Yep.
Paleo/Primal with the hubby. He's dropping weight... me, not near so quickly! But, what's not to like about steak and green beans with bacon? ;)
The evenings on the deck have been so beautiful! Coolness... and the smell of the warmth lingering as the sun goes down. I love that earthy spring smell.
One of my favorite things is catching "little glimpses" that make me smile. I caught the glimpse of morning rain... shining on the deck... plants soaking it up... Yep. Made me smile. And, give thanks.
