I wanted to show you my sweet Rosebud Azaleas and give you an update about what’s going on around this old house. If you are here for the giveaway you will need to scroll down a few posts.
This variety of Azalea is my very favorite.
I finally cleaned out this area of the front planter that rounds the corner of the house and planted a hydrangea in the space. Time will tell if the blooms will stay purple.
My cement block plantings are mostly doing real well. The wild rabbits that roam around here have eaten all the pansy blooms, though.
Things are going well with my extraction recovery. I never really experienced any pain to speak of which is nice. I’ll be getting the stitches out on Wednesday if they haven’t dissolved on their own. I’m still on a relatively soft diet so I don’t hurt the area that is healing. Although I still have a few days of antibiotics left I am off the Ibuprofen. Thank you for your kind thoughts. My de-fluffing progress was hindered by being on medication and being off my regular meal regiment but I’m happy to report things are still going well.
Happy Victoria Day weekend to our friends in Canada!
Since our yard project was completed for now I’m sharing the before and after views before I share our great overnight getaway.
We had an unusual string of dry mild days in February and the beginning of March that gave us lots of time to work on some projects in our yard.
Phase two in process…
Walkway done and now onto the extension and step down from the deck.
Digging, digging, chipping away at large tree root, digging some more and hauling off the dirt and grass…
Defeated the tree roots and moved on…
We are now getting to the end of this part of our project.
Chose a new planter box and planted some plants in the cement blocks.
Another before shot…
We are pleased with the results from all our hard labor over several weekends and evenings.
We still have a few more ideas for tweaking some things but for now we enjoyed a weekend without any labor. During our overnight away we probably put back on the weight we dropped working on this project. Looking forward to this first full week of Spring. What’s on your agenda?
