The first spring and we can see a few areas underway – just.

The project is going much more slowly than I had hoped.  But some of the plantings we did last fall are indeed growing, and we are really, really, really coming to the end of the construction so we can do some the final soil grading, amending and planting near the house — though maybe not till fall. Another season lost.  Sigh.
