Snow on Thursday and Planting Trees and bushes on Saturday

Wild weird Spring weather is upon us. As I complained about in my last post, it snowed on Thursday (in April,not May, yes I know) and today I spent a good hour planting. Here are some pictures of the event. I should acknowledge that toothsome #1 did most of the digging. Toothsome #2 was on an "adventure" with Daddy and so she was absent from all of this. That is a Blushing Bride Althea tree.

Here is a Carol Mackie Daphne. I love how they smell in the Spring. I hope I got it in soon enough for it to bloom be fragrant this year. If not, my neighbor has one and I will enjoy hers.
Notice my completely covered body--a pair of my husband's dental school scrubs and an old t-shirt I purchased in Israel back in 1993. That is my work in the yard outfit. I usually have a bigger hat with a wider brim but toothsome #3 really wanted me to wear my baseball hat. I also have a new shorter haircut, which is not obvious in the picture. Oh , and my newest favorite quote, "I supposed you could worry about it, but you are not obligated to." Happy Spring and Happy 70th (yes 70th birthday to my mom on the 25th). She doesn't blog but I wanted to give a shout out to her anyway.

Happy Birthday to Janice's Mom! I should have done some planting today too, but played hookie from yard work and will have to pay for it later! (the weeds are getting high around here preen or no preen)
