Manana

We have been working on the yard since January. Now that it is getting warmer we are moving our work indoors.
In the backyard, we pulled up the railroad tie border that was only half done, leveled corner where there was a big hole, built a raised bed, planted veggies, a rose bush, & a variety of flowers. We also cut back some kind of bush/tree that is very invasive. It is growing again in the alley rather vigirously. We'll just have to keep cutting.
In the front yard, we planted plumbago-lots of it, sage, nandina, st. johns wort, daisies, irises and vincas. the color makes the house so much friendlier.
The lawn in the front & back is mostly a variety of weeds & crabgrass. We planted a test patch of Bermuda. It has done well so we hope to get more seeded soon. In the meantime, we have fed the soil in preparation.
But now it is getting warm. There are only a few hours in the early morning when we can work. So our attention is turning to the projects indoors. Phil is prepping to build closets and I'm trying to pull all my stuff together, including me, to go back to work on the floors.
Oh, for a nap!
