A Little Bit of Landscaping...

My mom has been helping us get a jump start on some 'landscaping' in the front yard... Sawyer Garden Center, near my parents' house in Michigan, is a WONDERFUL nursery, offering a huge selection of healthy flowers, plants, shrubs, etc. ... and their prices are MUCH cheaper than garden centers here, in Chicago. Since my mom goes up to Michigan at least once every week, she's been watching for things to go on sale. She managed to pick up three nice pots, a butterfly bush, a couple of hydrangeas, several asters, a rose bush, two types of pieris plants, a pot of mums and a pot of wild grasses, ALL at 50% regular price. ... and then, she helped with planting everything. Thanks mom!

We figure we'll do some more planting next summer, once the garden starts filling in, but in the meantime, we'll have to plant some tulip and daffodil bulbs this fall (for spring).
