"It's Up To YOU...

...new mulch ... newwwwwww mulllllllllllllllch!!!!!"

Ha roo, pups and cool cats!  It's me - Zim!  Mom and Dad weeded and got all that new mulch put in yesterday.  You have no idea how exhausting it was for me and Dave to watch them from inside the comfort of the air-conditioned house.  I actually had to switch rooms a time or two in order to keep an eye on them!  It was pretty tough -- but hey, we are Working Breed pups after all!

Let's see how Mom and Dad did!  Here's a "new" Snowball Viburnum, at the edge of the front garden:

"Good luck, Mr. Viburnum!  Grow us some snowballs, OK?!?"

Dad dug out some dead stuff before - and this is part of one of the viburnums he dug up from that tier by the stairs! I hope it makes it!

Further down the line are the new rhododendrons, the Red Bud trees -- and toward the front a couple bunches of peonies (they aren't in bloom yet) and in the middle some of mum's mums.  Ha roo roo roo.

How about a closer look at one of the PJM Rhododendrons?

Yeah, OK.  I wasn't really looking at the rhododendrons.  Fluffy Black Cat lives on that side and I was checking to see if she was home.

Let's go see how that tier by the stairs on the other side of the house looks:

Those Maiden Grasses just look like twigs and a couple sprigs of green now, but if they make it, they'll fill out to a couple feet wide and will grow 3-4 feet tall!  They'll also get cool plume-y things on them.  Mom is going to plant something along the stairs, like maybe a low-growing sedum or some kind of "stepable" plant that will help avoid soil and mulch washout.  Today is back in the 40s with rain, so she is going to wait a few days.  In the meantime, Dave and I will do our best to keep her entertained!

"Let's go, Mom!  C'mon, Dave!"
"I've still got that 'New Mulch, New Mulch' song stuck in my head, Zim!  Woo!"
