Planters Defined…

Spring blossoms 026

Just a few weeks ago there was no visible border between the planter and the grass. We extended the planter and put this block border in.


After putting in the new border we had to dig out all the grass and weeds. We have a few more weeds to pull out and then we will add bark on top of the dirt. We also want to add some type of plants that are low profile at the curve in front of the hydrangea. Once this and another planter behind our deck are complete I’ll do a full before and after post showing similar angles.



Tonight Josh, Laura and I will be at the U.S.A. v Ecuador game at Century Link Field in Seattle for a quarterfinal game in the Copa America Centenario tournament. (Boy that was a long sentence) The photo above is from a U.S.A. friendly game against Panama a few years ago that Josh and I attended.

Since I’ll be enjoying soccer tonight my Friday post will be late and it might have some fresh photos from Copa America!

I have a couple recipes that are published on Mennonite Girls Can Cook this week. Get the recipe for Creamy Potato Gratin and Succotash Plus by clicking on either name.

  1. Hello, the border and garden look pretty. I like your pretty pink blooms. Good luck to the USA team! Wishing you a happy Thursday and weekend ahead!

  2. Your new border looks great…so neat and tidy! Are you stiff and sore from all that work? (I am probably just imagining how I would feel! 😉 )

    Have a wonderful time at the game! Fun!!

  3. That looks very ‘pro’ Ellen! We are working away but so far see little difference. Another season, I think!
    Potatoes with cheese – that’s for me!
