But, now that it is monday I thought I'd let my waiting public in on what happened at the Phares estate. Not too much. I moved our only surviving raspberry bush to the front yard. I will add a few more from the master gardeners sale here in a month or so. I may also add blueberries, but that debate has not been decided yet. (it all depends how much is in the budget for such things). I also put all of the dirt into the new front garden. This finishes the project for now. I will plant about 50 day lilies (red and orange mix) as a border around the outside when they come in March. I also need to build my trellis for the vertical gardens - tomatoes, peas, beans, and possibly cucumbers. Those will be done next weekend, or the next... or possibly the weekend after that.
There are a lot of new faces popping up around. Some crocus' are here, along with daffodils, and some dutch iris'. There may be others, but those are the only ones that I can remember exactly where I planted them. It was a fun weekend, though we didn't end up making it to the flower show in seattle. There is always next year.
