Tonight's 'before and after.' I tried to get a good picture of this part of the garden, but you can hardly see any of the plants from this angle. Still, it's looking much lusher now. The big plants are perennials that were dormant in the 'before' picture.













It was a great day off. I was surprised that the weather turned out so nice. Tomorrow's only supposed to get up to 60, but there's nothing wrong with that. Before you know it we'll be in the hot and sticky days of summer. I was up early this morning and decided to leave the house at 7:30. I went to the grocery store for Starbucks and groceries, then to The Home Depot to buy plants for my mother. It was the first time I've been there that I resisted the urge to buy something for myself. It wasn't easy. I planted tomatoes in big pots for my mom, which made her enormously happy. My sister Lisa planted a great vegetable garden in their yard, but my mom can't walk over to it easily, nor bend down to pick anything. With the pots, she can watch the plants grow, and pick the tomatoes when they're ripe. I planted flowers by the patio, and moved some other plants around. My brother and his family planted the window boxes in the front of the house, so my mom is set. My mother was quite the gardener in her day, and we've all helped her do what she wishes she could do herself. I cut and colored my mom's hair and went to Men's Warehouse with both parents to pick up my dad's suit. Mom and I finished our time together with lunch at Panera's. I had the salmon salad and a tart cherry scone for dessert. Yum.

I came home to find a very cute and young cable guy digging all over my cul-de-sac. The cable box is across the street from my house and he had to use some kind of tool to dig under 5 driveways to get to my house. I'm ashamed (not) to say that I watched him on and off for hours. Yes, I took a few pictures but only got his back (side. He'll be back in the morning to finish. I'll be watching out for him.

Your mother seemed to have taught the whole family about gardening. It looks wonderful. Any chances we will get a "sneak peak" of the young cable guy?
