I just wanted to show you how pretty the ranunculas look in the garden. I actually planted them last Friday but I haven't had a chance to share the pictures until today.
I got another little section of the back perennial bed cleaned up yesterday. I've just about rounded the corner which is the half way point. I actually could have kept going but I had "help" from of a certain three year old who delights in gathering pill bugs. He insisted I stop what I was doing and help him make a house for his new "pet".
We put a few clippings in the bottom of an old sippy cup for food and the poor bug made himself comfortable in his new
I don't know how to tell the little rolly polly that he is luckier than the last pet bug who didn't even make it out of Andrew's pocket alive. I'll let you know his fate tomorrow...the last I saw he was being clutched in the hand of a toddler strapped in the backseat of a car and headed to San Diego.
Weather permitting, I will be back outside today to finish the clean up. Then I will work compost into the soil and decide what new plants to add to the border. I have a few annuals waiting to go into pots, as well.
All in all it sounds like a pretty terrific day. I hope yours is enjoyable, too.
