So, missed a couple of days blogging.  Friday would have been our 34th anniversary, and even though it's been 5 years since I lost Bill, it was a bad day for me.  Sometimes grief just comes around the corner and smacks you in the face when you least expect it. So, I pretty much did nothing all day!
Saturday was #2 grandson's birthday party.  He turned 8 on Thursday!  And of course, the kids were planning on swimming (they have an above ground pool), and of course, a 2 hour thunderstorm came through!  They finally did get to swim, but I left right after the storm was done! 

More before and after landscaping pics.  This is the back of the house and the north corner of the house.  I did just plant those pink tulips last year, so hope they come up again, after they saved them.
 Also had the guys remove that post that holds the hanging baskets and I replaced it with a double shepherd's hook that hopefully looks a little better.  The peony was there already, so they just added some shrubs, black eyed susans, salvia, and catmint.

 This is the north corner of the house, it had a huge hosta that was just getting ready to bloom, but they had to take it out.  There was lots of gravel around the air conditioner, too.  Also had a vinca vine and lily of the valley in that corner - but they had to take all of it out of there.
In place of the ground cover, there are 3 French lilacs and shrubs and perennials.  The window that is open above them is above the kitchen sink, so when the lilacs bloom, their scent should fill the kitchen!

Just a couple more pics of the landscaping to case you're getting bored!

Until next time.....blessings.
