So, a few weekends ago my parents came to town and helped us plan our "garden." We had plans to have mulch delivered and to go buy plants. There wasn't a hint of rain in the forecast. Well, that Saturday morning it decided to pour rain on us. There wasn't even a chance of being able to plant on Sunday, since the ground was complete mud.
So, we went and picked out the plants (in the rain - no kidding!) and then held them in our garage until the following Thursday, when it was finally dry enough to plant a little.
Since then, we've been really lucky because it has rained just enough to keep them well-watered. So, here are some pictures of the (small but soon to be large) plants. Hopefully this weekend or the next we'll get the chance to plant some pretty flowers!
