Today he had playground mulch delivered, and he's back there now, spreading it out on Emma's playground.
I did a little watering, including the two new pines by the drive. They were drooping, so I guess I need to water them a bit more often. They have a lot of new growth to support right now. I will try to remember to water them again tomorrow, and then we might get some rain this weekend. I also watered the red bud and pussy willow trees, and need to remember to give them lots of water as well --I'd especially like to water the redbud deeply, to encourage deep roots so it will survive the winters. I'll need to leave the hose there for a while to really let it get thoroughly watered.
My lupines are blooming --white! I've sent an email to Lisa, to see if she can think of what I might be doing wrong with them. They just don't look lush and healthy. I should try to top them with compost and more mulch. Maybe the bed is just too sandy.
The rose is amazing this year --I've never seen it with so many blossoms at once.
