Landscaping: Two Months Later

It’s been two months since we put all of our baby plants in and I’m pretty amped at how they are doing.  Everything seems to be growing well, and taking their turn blooming.  It’s been fun to see the different stages of the landscaping.  Almost all of our plants have flowers, so it’s neat to see the blooming pattern and how the overall feeling of the yard changes as summer progresses.
