Thought I would give everyone an update on the 'color' in my front garden. The county guys came on Tuesday and told me they would be doing the work on Wednesday. They saved the piece of pipe that had been 'punctured' by another utility...looks more like they broke it! Pipe was cut and repaired, a new cleanout pipe put in, sand, topsoil, seed and straw placed. These guys were really great. I couldn't dig up my bulbs because of the frozen ground. Since they had the big bucket scooper they scooped my bulbs and set them off to the side. How great is that? They also made sure not to grass seed my garden bed area at the end. You can click on each photo to see the enlarged picture. I spent a little time this afternoon putting the bulbs back in the ground and scattered a few seeds that need the cold period.
And now for a promise of color for spring...the Carolina Jasmine on the back swingset is full of buds!
