Random pic from May

Just a few toads that RC has cleaned out of the pool - have I mentioned there isn't one thing working properly on the pool so far????

We completely wore the children out when we were in Fayetteville. So much fun is clearly exhausting. 

Robin's eggs outside dining room window. Cody said that robin has been hanging around the house for years.

First day of laying down sod. Puppies approve!

Switching gears - a few weeks ago at Haven. We added a new gardening bed behind the garage. Ray torched the grass first, then a thick layer of newspaper, don't ask, then compost, manure and then mulch. 

I collected just a few rocks from Covey for the new bed. 

Just a few more. 

Not the best picture, but all done.
We added several tomato plants, which we must stake soon, some basil, rosemary, and some leeks. 

Ray getting creative changing lawn mower to mulcher. YEAH!

Buck at the vet. He was all excited about being there not realizing he was going to get the big snip. He did excellent, seriously didn't miss a beat, way to go Buck!

Covey's spring garden in all its glory. 

This is a white climbing rose. It's suppose to be Sombreuil but isn't. Might be Colonial White...

Pink Drift rose. I love these. Bought at Lowe's last year. They add a nice pop of color by the Mary Rose. 

Dortmund on fence, Belinda's Dream around bird feeder, lambs ear in front with Walker's Low catmint, and the white gardenia azalea under the Japanese maple. 

Cramoisi Superieur climbing rose. 

Maggie rose to left and peonies in center, possumhaw holly tree to right. 

Peonies and roses from the garden. 

Zephirine Drouhin much happier than last year. I moved this plant last spring. It was seriously not happy with me. Apparently all has been forgiven.
This is the best climber.
Very mannerly. Thornless, yes, thornless, and delightful fragrance.

Some type of viburnum. Moved to Haven and it's NOT happy about being moved. 

Mary Rose, May Night, lambs ear, and some white gardenia azaleas in the back.
