Yard Work so far this spring

So I thought I would share some of what I've done so far this spring.

Last year we had removed 3 arborvitae trees from this corner of the house.  This spring, it's taken me about a month, with a little help from Rob .. to clean the rocks, lay down rubber mats under the trash cans, move the edging by those mats out to make it better. and regraded the ground in the corner, so that it will slope away from the house instead of to the house.  Here is what it looks like now.  Still needs a little raking and putting down more grass seed right on the lawn part here, but it's much better than what it was.

And here are the two pots that I put in the corner to add some interest and camouflage the drain pipe a little bit.

And then I added a couple of large pots around the patio. Still need a lot of work on the rocks to clean them. but I'll get to it eventually. 

Here are my two pots of herbs ...

And a few pots with flowers that I just planted up tonight.

 This one below, will hopefully have some morning glory climbing up the trellis ...
with petunias around the edge.

My bulb bed is getting ready to bloom ... Don't have flowers for the large blue pot yet .. still working on that.

And here is one of our trees in full bloom tonight ...

I have purchased a few tomatoes and green peppers this year.  I'll try to get these in the garden tomorrow night after work. There just wasn't time tonight before it got dark.
