More digging in the dirt

Ok folks, cross your fingers my gardening efforts have been successful.  I really don't want to do too much more of it.  I managed to dig out the old dead potentilla. And, it felt so good to throw it away
The one on the other side proved more challenging but the man next door saw me struggling and come over with a bigger shovel and snips and between the 2 of us we got it out.  So with all the old out it was time to plant the new.  
There is the 2 new shrubs on either end. I'll fill in the bare spots with a few annuals later this week.  The other side of the step has the new hydrangea (hiding behind the tulips) and the other euonymus on the end
I want to plant some low annuals around this one too.  And I have a new basket for my step
Almost there!  Miss Abby probably won't like me sharing this picture. I took her to the groomers a few days ago and said I wanted her clipped short for summer.   Oh dear.........I picked her up and...........all I saw was legs and ears 
I think she's ashamed.  I hope it grows quick.  Poor little thing. And naturally it's been cool since she got clipped. Friday night she shivered when we came in from outside.   I can't believe the weekend is over already.  I really need 3 day weekends on a regular basis 


  1. Seems to me she is excited to see her mom no matter how her hair cut turned out. Abby looks like a pretty girl to me anyway.

  2. Nice work! 90's here for a couple of days,, so very limited gardening. just a few annuals put in planters while on the shade of the porch.

    Oh Abby!!!!

  3. Gardening is hard work but so worth it when it's all done. Your yard and home are becoming your own! Abby's legs remind me of Chubb's after he gets clipped. His pouchy belly makes him look funny! Oh well, I'm sure he's appreciated being cooler since our weather has been pretty warm the past 2 weeks. Have a good Monday!

  4. It looks great Kim, you have a nice neighbor.
    I can wait to see everything you have in mind for your flowerbeds. Poor Abby. I was thinking of doing the same thing to Sasha, I just haven't.
    I hope your Monday doesn't go by too fast.

  5. Lucky you to have such a helpful neighbor. Keep up the yard work ~ the end result will make it all worthwhile.
    That Abby has some L-O-N-G legs!
    Hugs :)

  6. Oh your garden is shaping up! I bet Abbey will thank you when it gets hot again.

  7. Your garden is going to look really nice. Poor little Abby! But it will grow fast.

  8. Good morning! Your yard is going to be stunning this summer! Miss Abby certainly looks taller. LOL What a nice neighbor...

  9. Abby looks cute with her new haircut! :-) Your yard is looking fabulous! I'm so glad winter is done with... time to enjoy the sunshine!
