They say, Mother's Day, here. I'm only putting out the cold season stuff.

My neighbor got the overgrown, mostly dead, bushes out. Five of them.

I replaced them with compact, interesting, evergreen, flowering things and it looks great, already, even though there is mud and rocks all over. Incredible improvement. 

If I were selling, I'd raise the price 5K. It looks that good and this whole deal cost $200.

@elsa HA! I did similar. I Hard pruned overgrown forsythia and took out some nasty landscape bushes. It is 100% improvement for the street view.

My california poppy seeds have started after building soil and weeks of watering and babying them.

Thery are really hard to start, but one they get started they will spread and cover the dry boring area between the fence and the street, and look NATURAL ! LOL !!

It is supposed to be 77 degrees here today. I want to put flowers out so BADLY!!

Well, it's a long stretch. I haven't counted but there are probably 15 varied "shrubs", in a rock garden.

Rock garden has been there 20 years now, and while I do blow leaves and trimmings out, there's a good layer of dirt beneath... the algae covered rocks. Sorting all this is my mission, this spring. It's a job, so I'm really glad it looks so good.

The arugula is already bolting. Not a good variety for here.

Expect low 40's tonight, but I'm putting (some) tomatoes out because they're hardened off and cramped in their pots.... overly long pregnancy!
