Spring 2015 Garden Bloom

It's been very busy around here. I'd like to share a small portion of  my spring garden in bloom.  I've been trying to get my garden flower beds edged and 5 yards of mulch spread out before the construction crew arrives.  We had a damaging winter  especially for delicate shrubs , young trees and flowering bushes. Lots of clean up and repair.




When planting your garden beds, try to plant flowers , bushes and trees  for color in both Spring and Summer.

I will share with you some areas from different angles to give you a better idea on how much  work   my garden is.
