I have been sick for over a week with the flu/bronchitis. I hope I start feeling better soon.)-: I hate being sick! SO much to do and not feeling good is not a good thing at all.
Before I got sick however I put down a yard of pea gravel and a yard of compost. So I was happy about that. I have my bed garden pretty well done except for a few more odds and ends of plants. I bought three pretty red azaleas and I am excited to see them bloom. Should be pretty against the blue house. I also put an old grain feeder in that grouping. I planted some mondo grass in it because I wanted something that was spikey and would be green all year. I have a overabundance of the stuff so why not? I know what some people might say. Living where I do it makes sense to use what will work instead of trying to put things in that won't. Mondo grass loves me. Hard to believe that 20+ years ago I got a little clump from my Great Aunt who passed away last November at age 105. She would be laughing to see how well it did here!

Well time to get moving. Have a great day!

You'll be out in the garden again before you know it - just take care of yourself now.
