And she was right, July is probably not the best time to build a small retaining wall around your back patio, plant huge trees, and move a bunch of dirt around, but that’s what we’ve been doing. For the last few days though, I’ve just been planting a little here and there. I’ve been waiting until almost dusk to go out in the yard.
We still have to level the three walkways and add pea gravel in between the stones. Here’s a peek at it almost done.
Despite how the trees look in the photo, they are doing good. The big one on the left was a little bare at eye level when we purchased it because of how close the trees were together at the nursery.
See, here’s some new growth. 🙂
It’s also not really the best time to buy plants because selection at the garden centers are pretty slim, but the prices sure are good, almost all the flowers I’ve bought have been on sale.
I was thrilled to find a crepe myrtle bush that is hardy for Missouri. Well, it may not be a bush forever, it might be a small tree. Either way, it reminds me of Louisiana and it makes me very happy.
These flowers are making me happy too.
