The traditional day for planting the garden is Easter Monday. That is so late this year that I am starting a little early. I double-dug the bed for my cutting garden yesterday. This was much easier before I was sixty! Today I will plant zinnias and marigolds.
My neighborhood is starting to look rather beautiful as the trees fill out and the flowering shrubs are in their glory.
When we moved into our house seventeen years ago, there was not a blade of grass or a single tree in our front yard. It was nothing but dirt.
