Some boxwoods on deck (or next to?) to replace these:

I call them “evergreen vomit.” Anyone else have these in their yard? HATE!

Some salvia for the herb garden. Hope it perks back up soon…

Approved evergreen…

Some starts from my mom’s garden. I love some of their names…

Jack in the Pulpit anyone? I love it, but we had to plant it in a place we’d be sure the dogs would never eat it but we could still enjoy it. Can’t wait to see it come up some more…

More pretty things.

We have six pepper plants, and I’m starting to think it isn’t enough…

Snoozy pups.

Pork chops + salt + pepper + coconut sugar = AMAZING

Some tender grilled asparagus with a hint of balsamic completes the meal.

Now off into the night for some computer games!

  • Looks like a fantastic Friday. And your pups are the cutest! I love that photo of them sunbathing.

    • Jessica says:

      They LOVE laying in the sun. I have a feeling some doggy sunblock is in our future, especially for our ginger.

  • We have one of those evergreens in our front yard — it is HUGE. And dying. We’re giving it one more shot to spring back this summer and if it doesn’t, it is out.

    And then I’m hoping to replace it with a fruit tree or two!

    • Jessica says:

      That’s what we’re doing with a few of our trees. You have one shot tree, or you’re out! I think our sick evergreens look especially sad as they die.

    I love the progress you’re making!
