Another chapter of my continuing conquest of the front lawn was written this weekend. I need to get a few more plants for the area but I extended the planting bed along the sidewalk all the way to the front walk. This will eventually "jump" across the front walk and extend to create a new planting bed in the parkway. It should look nice once it starts filling in.
The plants are all doing well but there are relatively few flowers. I think I need to get a few more plants that bloom in the early spring because the garden isn't very dynamic right now, except for some strays.
The "herb garden" is looking a little lame but I am sure it will pick up once the warm weather hits. I do have a survivor from last year in the general garden area. Somehow a squash plant made it through the winter and is doing fine. I have no idea how this happened - all of the others died. We also put in early peas this year, the only other vegetable in the garden at the moment.
