I know it's barely April, but spring came early in Texas. I've been working on the landscaping for three weeks now and can I just say - I hate fire ants and weeds, and I am really, really old. Maybe not chronologically, but my knees and back and willing to argue over that point. I wish I could say I'm done, but I'm not even close. Everything is a hassle.
I have two giant beds in the front lawn under trees. One is under an oak, so only shaded stuff works. The other is under a crape myrtle, so only full sun stuff works as it's facing west. Both were completely empty. So I went to the nursery to pick out shrubs and plants, then came back home and researched, then the nursery, then the Internet, then more Internet, then the nursery. You get the idea. It's heck when you don't know you're plants.
Isn't it hilarious how she just sits there wearing the hat?
Anyway, Kimi is doing fabulous and because I've been walking her so much, I'm even losing weight. We have a 150-acre park right across the street from our house and it's got great cement paths and trails through the woods. I took this pic the other day with my phone. I know it's likely all undesirable trees and weeds, but the canopy of green was so pretty.
So what are you up to this spring? Any planting?
