ROOT DOWN

This weekend has been filled with dirt, earthworms, flowers, weed control fabric, mulch... It is finally May, and we have began revamping our backyard!! I am ready to find some more blooms, but I need to take it one weekend at a time!! :)  Here are some photos that capture our day.

Placing the mulch over the weed control fabric after planting red and purple blooms.


They might be little now, but they are gonna root down and grow!!

Another "friend" I found in the garden. Where there is earth, there are earthworms.
