Finally time to do some Gardening – Black and White Sunday
We moved houses over Christmas to a smaller house on the same street. Our old garden had a beautiful little rose garden, a pond and lots of established plants.
In the new house, we only have a back deck, some large planter boxes and pots and a garage behind our house, but it turns out that we have the potential for a nice front garden. It was very overgrown and unappealing when we moved in during winter. My husband and I spent last weekend digging, pruning and cleaning up. Kilo joined us on his long leash tied around my waist. Kilo loves digging, sniffing and snoozing in the garden if I am nearby. He posed briefly with an old lawnmower (not in use anymore). He did not trust it one bit but wanted to help.
Now that the area is all clear we are planning which plants to buy. We uncovered some great hydrangeas and euonymus. We are thinking of a green and white theme to go with some white wrought iron furniture we have. Right now it looks very black and white and barren.
Do you like gardening with your dog? What plants and flowers do you have? What mosquito protection do you use (they were not out yet but by next week at sunset, they could be a problem)?
Have a great weekend.
