We got a beautiful little tree! As you know, we have a VERY small yard. Our Moms have been wanting a Japanese Maple to grow in a container. Well, this past week, one of our non-blogging Mom's co-workers GAVE us this Japanese Maple! It was in exchange for a cherry tree that we had that was going to grow way too big for our yard. Isn't it pretty?
Our Moms are big pesto fans, so they like to grow basil every year. This basil was looking pretty wimpy, but then we had some rain this week and suddenly it's looking better. We still think it's touch and go though. We usually grow it on the Southwest side of our house, but this year we are trying it on the North side of the house. It actually gets pretty good sun there, so we will keep our paws crossed and keep you posted on it's progress.
We leave you this week with a view of our garden snakes. No, they aren't real garden snakes! They are rocks that our friend Jaki Christeve painted for us. Mom is trying to get a little rock garden/succulent garden thing going in one part of the yard.
