The FInishing Touches

This weekend was beautiful and we were able to seize the moment and fill in the final plantings to complete the backyard.  Well, at least we are down to 95%.  Trying to coordinate 84 varieties of plants and find them at 4 different suppliers has been a challenge.  Next weekend will be the mulch/compost.  One of my new favorites is this Virginia Sweetspire.  This is in full bloom right now and has these long drooping white cone-shaped "flowers".  Another interesting one is this Jerusalem Sage.  It's not at all what I expected!  Cavett's sunflower seeds have even sprouted!  We have also gotten part of our new patio furniture set.  The rest is still on order and I am crossing my fingers that it will be here by the 14th of May. (I'm having a little girls reunion of sorts.)
