3/08/03 - Warming up the House - Friends and co-workers joined us for a house warming party this weekend. For those not in attendance, we enjoyed a smorgasbord of some of my favorite dishes, wine, and a massive portion of conversation. The following are a few pictures depicting all of the fun.
3/16/03 - Spring planting - After the snow cleared up, it became spring (strange how two seasons in the south can be separated alone by one week!) We planted a Red Maple tree after much searching. I love the red color, but they apparently don't do very well here because of the lack of water, so it was difficult to find one. Fortunately, we have an in-ground sprinkler system that can be programmed for frequent watering. In addition, we spent today landscaping. It was 70° and sunny. We applied edging around the landscape areas and planted Photinia, dwarf Monkey grass, Duranta gold tip, Caladium bulbs, Gladiolus bulbs, Canna bulbs, and various seeds. It was a lot of work but hopefully will look beautiful soon.
