Busy , busy Spring!

It's been a very busy Spring for me , trying to get this yard established, with flower beds , harbors,new deck and house painted..not counting birthdays,Al's was May 20th , Scarlett's May 22 also Rhi's graduation from preschooland Al's retirement is Friday the 29th..

We have very little growing time here in Iowa so its important to get the plants established before these hard winters hit.I was disappointed today the plant shops are all getting ready to close, everything is now picked over and lots of sales BUT I am not finished..I still need two trees desperately..I hope to get them planted next week and of course something new to wear Friday :}
I have a few pic's but will have more of the finished look just scroll down I am sure they aren't in order..
This is our new fountain and the new paint as you can see we only have one window and the door painted so far!
