gardening in April part 2
This week my daughter came to visit for a couple of days, and continued work on the flower gardens in the front yard--started a couple of months ago. She went to the garden shop and brought home 3 azaleas, 1 japonica, 1 lilac tree, and some marigolds and allysum (spelling?? aka "snow-on-the-mountain")--and a clematis. She also got lots of topsoil. So the two of us spent a very pleasant afternoon digging and planting. Actually, she did most of that (consulting with me about where I wanted things, but even then I think she made most of the final decisions), and I weeded another section of the garden that we'll plant in a month or two when she comes back to Vancouver.
