A gardening update

After a decade of living in condos, I finally have a chance to, um, get my hands dirty. Thank goodness for Lee Valley's nifty nail brush! I am following the garden design methodology of "See it, buy it, plant it". It's a very disciplined way of planning a garden.

One of the gardens in the backyard (graced by Wick):

Rex and some azaleas:

The other garden bed in the backyard:

The front yard garden bed (this needs a lot of work):

Speaking of the front, the door got its first coat of paint. I really like how it's starting to look. A couple more coats and some new hardware and it will look pretty spiffy.

The herb section of the veggie garden:

The middle bed:

The third bed. I'm pretty sure all the things (except for the herbs) have been planted way too early, but it's just so much fun!

The cabinets are about 60% installed. They should finish the job by Monday or Tuesday, and then the flooring guys will do their thing. The first couple coats of paint are done, and the baseboards and casings have been painted (they'll be installed after the floors are laid). Appliances are scheduled to arrive on May 10th. Oh, good gravy, I think it's almost done! Hurrah!
