Garden update: We create a new space

My wife got inspired and added a cool extra section to the front garden. Froggy, a nifty rock, and a half-dozen assorted perennials surround her new planter urn. Fine and fancy!

Our front garden: we add a lovely red stone pathway

With hot weather and an early summer as incentive, our first outdoor project of the new season is to add a red stone walkway through the garden.

Summer came early and the garden's gone crazy!

We've never mulched this early. Several days of eighty degrees, a bit of rain, and some serious sun -- instant garden in New York!
