We finally got back to the gardening project and added some roses and two apricot trees. I filled in the empty spots with some annuals and hoped it would all spread out nicely.
In the end, the annuals ended up filling up the whole bed. Who new sweet potato vine liked cool, wet weather so much?
We took advantage of an obliging warm spring day to snap
a picture of our ladies after church. It's hard to find them all
in one place at the same time.
Then, we found this poor abandoned and soggy creature cowering in the tall grass at the edge of the neighboring field. It is a baby woodchuck and it's mother was apparently having a "bad mommy" day. She took off and left her baby to fend off the strangers, (us), by itself.
All dry and looking much better now, the baby woodchuck's
mother was again "looking out for #1" and left this cute
little guy in the middle of our field. We were able to get quite
close to get a picture.
