Yard WORK

Well, Seattle was gorgeous! I am happy to see that things have warmed up and spring is starting to show its face in Spokane too.  We went in the back yard yesterday and pulled out all of the old dead plants and saw all of the new growth underneath -- talk about amazing! I am so glad the previous owners were into Perennials, because I hardly have to plant anything.  The trees have buds, the peonies are starting to come out of the ground -- it's wonderful.

Our green bin was stuffed full of branches, grass, dirt, dead leaves etc... but now my planters have beautiful flowers in them.  The tag said full sun, and so I put them in the front yard -- well...one may have died already.  We watered A LOT today :)  I think this year will have many lessons learned in the way of gardening.  Hopefully we won't kill too many plants in the process.
While we were outside, we saw a neighbor taking many truck loads out of their house-- it SOLD, so they are moving.  I'm so glad they're getting such great weather for moving! 
We're off to enjoy the 70* weather and get some exercise!
