As always, Buster is the supervisor.

After almost two straight days of rain, I woke up this morning to sun! The back yard is starting to dry out.

I went to Home Depot on the way home from church this morning - Scott has been sick with the flu the past two days, so it was a solo trip. I got two bags of "garden soil" - still experimenting with what combination is going to be best for our clay base.

I also picked up a Hosta and four part shade creepers to make a nice pot for right outside the back door.

I added some part-sun creepers in between the phlox and then interspersed the baby wildflower peat pods as they are all about 2"-3" high.

On the veggie side, I picked up some three-foot cedar log short fencing to back the lowest part of the garden, I figure we'll do another step above and back that also. I think it really tightens up the look of the whole thing.

Once it was evident that I had enough soil to extend the low section, I dug up a few more feet and planted the baby bell-pepper peat pods and the baby cayenne peat pods.

Scott took advantage of Buster holding still to get some great shots of his handsome face.

The last three pictures made me laugh. They way you zoomed in on his expressionless face. Priceless!

Boxers are really poker-faced dogs.

I had hoped to get a lot done today, but it was surprisngly cold and overcast. I did fertilize the lawn though - the planting will have to wait until tomorrow.
