The planting begins! The stars aligned this weekend and we had the time and the weather to begin filling in all the planting spaces created earlier this year when we re-did the hard-scaping in our back yard.
We placed our order with Almaden Valley Nursery, a locally owned nursery and gift shop in San Jose. Our friend Doug is a nurseryman there. He pulled the order earlier in the week, then loaded it into the van with my husband’s help. Turns out we needed to make a couple of trips, but by late Saturday afternoon, all the plants were home and lined up on the back steps.
After this morning’s Easter egg hunt and a pancake breakfast, we got to work. Details tomorrow, along with photos of our progress.
Almaden Valley Nursery is located at 15800 Almaden Expressway, San Jose, California.
