Spring has sprung in my backyard!
Yesterday afternoon, I got an email from the Mr. that our trees had come in and our friend/landscaper was doing our planting. Woo-hoo.
In case you don't remember....it looked like this before.
We already knew our friend had ordered the evergreens for the back wall but we let him do whatever he wanted with the rest. Mr. Limestone took some photos so I could see the results (since it might be dark by the time I got home).
Obviously, it needs a little time to fill in but it looks pretty fab to me. In addition to the evergreens we have some low lying shrubs, a mini japanese maple and swirly plants on stakes on the right and left. I'm not sure what those are called but my first name and married name both happen to start with the letter "S" so I was excited to see those additions. I'll have to inquire about the name of all the plants so I don't sound like an plant idiot forever.
Please send prayers that I don't kill these things. We're assured that these are all very hardy plants but I have a very black thumb!
In addition to the sudden arrival of spring weather in NYC this week, the sudden greening of my backyard definitely makes it feel like summer is around the corner. I really need to paint that iron bench. Hmmm...maybe I should get some flowering containers going as well?
