Field trip to my new garden!

Our view
Wow, I realized it's been a year since my last post. What have I been up to? Well, mostly chasing around a very energetic 22-month old and a three-and-a-half-year-old. But on top of that we sold our old house with my beloved garden, bought a new house right on the Ipswich River and have taken on the task of completely relandscaping it with native plants and shrubs. Plus, adding a veggie garden, of course.

One completed section of woodland border

Two yards of loam: BEST TOY EVER!
So come on over to my new blog: A Riverside Garden Makeover: from nothing to native paradise in one summer.  Our landscaping project is also partially funded by a Federal grant from the Parker River National Wildlife Refuge, which means our yard will become a demonstration garden for the grant program (the pressure is on!)  It's going to be quite the journey for me and my whole family, and we're really excited about it. You can never have too much playing in the dirt!
