One by one.... completing the garden

These gardens used to be beautiful!

David and I picked up flowers from the contributors today. We feel like we have a majority of flowers to start. We need to buy alyssums in white and purple. Alyssums come in different colors in seeds so we may get some in yellow or apricot colors later ... They would fill in nicely as the others are fading out.

Today we worked the soil on the last three gardens. We took out the top three inches of soil and put it into the bin in the back area. Then we took out all of the rocks, cleaned them and restacked them. They were buried and their beauty was hidden. We are so happy with how great they look now. Tomorrow we'll be putting in the top soil and planting. All four of the quads will be finished by tomorrow night. We are going to plant some daffodil bulbs and some of the gladiola bulbs. Next spring we should have freesia, daffodils, gladiolas and ranuculous.

Our new baby goats are doing well. The last goat still hasn't kidded. We continue checking her every 4 hours but so far no babies and we are annoying the heck out of her by waking her up. We would love her to kid at a convenient time: maybe before midnight or at 9 in the morning but goats don't work like that..... they choose the most difficult time and place to kid. We know that: and know it will be in the middle of the night in a snow storm :)
