Despite the heat of 94 degrees we decided it was time to start planting a selection of new shrubs.
The First Sergeant had taken most of the existing landscaping up earlier this Spring, it was old and tired looking.
Our intentions were to replenish before the warm weather came along, unfortunately, that did not happen.
It's not a good choice to plant new shrubs in the heat of Summer, but we have to start somewhere, and finding these lovely Emerald Green Arborvitae at Lowes for a fraction of the cost, we took that step.
They are suppose to "screen" and grow to a height of fifteen feet, perfect !
The Creeping Jenny is taking over the rocks around the pond. This will be the third time I have pruned it back so far this Summer.
The Butterfly Bush continues to bloom, it's alive with the bees and their getting naughty....
No Rain in the forecast, maybe a 20% chance this weekend, we need it.
