The ground cover that I planted behind the pool is finally doing what I'd hoped - keeping the bank from eroding.
My moss "garden" continues to spread, I even added another stepping stone this year. It too is working as planned - to add color and interest to the entrance of the house.
I found a volunteer pumpkin plant in the old chicken run. It has 4 or 5 decent sized pumpkins on it!
I finished with the wood chips on the garden path several weeks ago. It doesn't look much different since the last pictures that I posted, but I did mow the remaining grassy areas last weekend, and it only took 5 minutes (vs. the 40 it has taken in the past.)
We began another project this evening - JP pierced L's ears. She has been working up the nerve to do it since December. She won't let me take a picture this evening, so I'll have to post a sparkly picture later.
