Things are really coming along with the yard here. I am loving the good soil at our new home. Compared to the sand based soil at the old house it grows things miraculously. I even am keeping a small flower bed alive, and planted a new rose bush that is thriving. I'm really REALLY looking forward to next summer when I can get a bigger start in the spring without having to worry about all the moving and health issues we had this year. I haven't done much at all with the backyard, but am going to attack that next year with a vengeance, and do much more to the front too.
