Our yard project continues as we seated the four raised beds yesterday and plan on working on the side garden bed outline today. Wow, it's a lot of work to take on an entire landscape redo right before spring planting, but I'm sure it will be well worth it.

I knew I wanted the kind of garden where one wants to stroll, explore and venture on. Slowly I hope that the garden becomes all of those things through the use of creative pathways, arbors, trellises and a plethora of planters. As the week continues I hope to put in our first trellises at the edge of our patio and begin choosing stepping stones. I have yet to decide whether I want stone or brick, oddly shaped or even, all the same or varied. It's definitely a step by step project.
The new beds are in
As the weather begins to warm up I find myself sitting outside and just being. It's quite alone in the garden with only the sounds of the chickens for company which provides a nice respite from the chaos of bunny, child and dogs inside. Speaking of the little bit of chaos; we are having a sweet guide dog puppy in training come to visit us for spring break. It will be nice to have a black lab in the house again!
