Planting day

I'm pooped! While the rest of the family played tourist today, with a trip to Linville Cavern, I decided to take advantage of this beautiful day and do some planting and a bit of weeding. I planted 50 strawberry plants, an apple tree, four ferns, about ten lilies of the valley and three oriental poppies. The garden is a mess and is going to need a lot more cleanup work this spring; but today was a good start.

There's still garlic and shallots to plant; but they're going to have to wait till our company leaves.

Some winter perennials are blooming as well as the Johnny jump ups; and some other perennials are peeking through as well. Spring is coming!

Time to hit the shower and get ready for dinner.
