Yesterday was a nice day with no rain. We got busy on the landscaping for the first time this year. This house has exstensive landscaping, lots of planters, pots, and flower beds, so much so that there really is no green space for the kids to play.
While we were putting some of the potted plants into the flower beds, stringing up branches from some plants, and doing some branch trimming we found some snails, a newt, and possibly potatoes nesttled in with a butterfly bush.
I put the amphibian in the wetland nearby. We cleared some pots off the deck and from the walkways, and the property looks better. There is still raking and trimming to do, plus there are more pots scattered throughout to empty. Hopefully the plants will take to the flower beds and the gardens will look fuller this Summer.
