Flowers and Rocks

Alongside putting in the lawn, I've been working for a while collecting large planter-pots and planting them. I've got quite a little pot farm going now, so I thought I'd take a break from pictures of proto-lawn dirt and get a little color on the blog:
These petunias are a cultivar called "Madness" according to the little plastic label. I can't decide if I think that is humorous or just plain ridiculous. They are very pretty.
This little white daisy is doing really well, I think the plant has already doubled in size since I planted it. It's light blue pansy neighbor is in danger of being overrun!
We have some nice rocks on our property here. These are a couple of the closest ones to the house... This one has a nice garland of native trailing blackberries looping over it. It will sure be beautiful when they get ripe... Mmmmmm. Berries.
This is the "rock garden" we cleared a path too a few weeks ago. There are a lot of rocks here, some of them are pretty big. They are all different colors, and some of them have speckles.
With all the work we've been doing, frantically trying to get these projects finished, it's good to take a break and spend a little time just wandering around looking at the beauty that is already out here. This is a nice place to live, and I feel really lucky to have it.
