Night Photo

We moved the three potted bamboo plants behind the planter. They are really ratty from winter neglect and abuse. I had to prune them a lot. I hope they like their new spots.

Cut Flowers

Last year I couldn't bring myself to cut some spring flowers for indoors. This past weekend we had a dinner party, so I went for it. Now I don't even have to look out the window to see some spring color. With a grey house, the color really stands out.

Done, For Now...

150 lbs of pebbles more, and I'm calling this project temporarily complete. I'd like the rock to be deeper, but its expensive and I'm on a tight budget these days starting up a new business. 
Tonight Kyle will help me move the three large planters of bamboo from the back yard and we'll place them along this wall to break up all those horizontal lines.They still look a little ratty and need some pruning, so I'm not sure if a photo will appear right away.
The tulips have started to bloom. I'm not sure what happened to the daffodils in the front bed, they only bloomed for a few days. We have others that are still going strong elsewhere. This weekend, we should have a lot of color.

Today's Work

 I got some of the holes planted today, all are perennial except the spiky grass. 10 more plants to go.
 Hardy agave in the foreground. We'll see how hardy it is. The rest are known to be hardy in Boise.
