I have been decidedly away from my computer and with that, blogging. I spoke before about a home project that I was working on and I still plan on sharing that most definitely later this week. Last week I dedicated some serious time on my garden and completed what I like to call the "1st stage"... a first round of planting and a general sprucing and pruning done. I've learned from the trials and errors of last year that I need to stick with shade loving plants; hostas, lilies, ferns, and do well with bulbs. I am trying out a few new ones this year and I am excited to see how they do. I also look forward to adding to the garden as it grows throughout the summer.
