The sun is peaking out every now and again, so the itch to work in the yard has pretty much taken over my husband. After work yesterday, the bulb bed in the front yard got weeded and barked. The iris and tulips will look great. The Cottoneaster has new growth and the daffodils in the neighbor's yard are up and about to open. Spring is coming and we are so ready for it!
This weekend we will be working outside if only to bring home a twisted white birch and some homemade strawberry towers. The strawberry towers are from the experimental garden at work, this year's garden group does not want them. Enter my "freescaping" plan, to the rescue! Same with the twisted white birch, it had been a donation to last year's group. However there is not a spot to plant the poor guy into the ground and it has become stunted in the grower's pot.

Our overall plan for the front yard is to have no lawn. With only trees, shrubs and flowers inter woven with walking paths. The white birch will be planted in the center and we shall work from there out..... I have to be honest this "freescaping" is fun. It also requires one to be creative, you just never know what you will find or be given!
We will be stocking the freezer with meat and the refrigerator with produce, it is getting a bit bare in there. I hope to get back to cooking and have a recipe or dish to share with all of you next week. Spring always beings a Pineapple Upside Down Cake to mind.....
As always, thanks for taking a minute to stop and say hello. We appreciate your time and your wonderful comments!
