Getting Under Way

Still haven't got any grass out front, but I did plant some hostas in a corner by one of the front doors.  I wasn't sure they'd like the move from Mom's garden to a new location, but they're doing great!

We spent a few hours out in back yesterday and planted a bunch of strawberries, weeded and levelled the area around the shurbs that I planted over the last year or two, and Darrell dug up a wonderful random hawthorn from under the crabapple tree and we planted it at the back of the yard.
