Mulched, Weeded, Blooming

Top: Main bed that we started three years ago. The peonies that we rescued from the edge of the woods are blooming in there! Bottom: New bed started this year in foreground. So far it's got Harry Lauder's walking stick (a super cool shrub), scabiosa, a few lilies, Japanese anemone, tomatoes, fescue and lots of annuals.

It's been a pretty dry spring so far, so lots of hand watering and hoping for rain to get our seeds going.

Do you collect rainwater?

Yep. We just got a new rain barrel!
