Moriah bought me this pretty plant -
We pulled the garden fence out this morning; I like the ease of being able to get to all the beds more easily for planting. I am also going to widen the walkways around the beds with more ground cover and mulch to reduce the weeding. The bottom is the kiwi plant that we relocated; of course this the first year in at least five that Lowes does not have kiwi plants for sale now that I need to buy it a kiwi mate.
It's amazing how nicely the grass can grow where I don't want it and yet doesn't grow in the middle of the yard where I actually plant it!
I think Mooster is going to have that baby in May. I ordered her milking machine and it is sitting in the living room in a box almost as large as a dishwasher. JD gets to set it up, figure it out , and give me lessons. He's pretty excited, (not!).

The guineas are out taking care of any bugs in the area that Mooster makes such a mess with her hay.
While James attempted to fix the mower and helped JD swap tractor attachments, Ben got to start moving excess dirt left from wall number one.
JD drew out where the lower wall will be and started digging it. He is going to work on the two side walls simultaneously, so the tractor can be used on both walls. He switched to the smaller tractor, in spite of the smaller bucket, due to the steep hill.
Standing where the lower garage drive way will be shows the need for the retaining walls!
Back to my planting - my sister just drove home from a visit in Memphis with her trunk loaded with plants that were multiplying at my Mom's house. I put in several plants in the middle of the driveway.
After trying a few things, hostas are the only plant that I like and thrive around the front patio in the shade, so she sent many more hostas and I filled in the empty spots.
