Landscaping for Barnwedding Started

With less than 2 weeks to go, we are making weeding, mowing and planting a priority at this point.  Did not want to start too soon, so that new weeds would not have time to surface through the mulch – plus it was still too cold to plant flowers.  But this weekend we started in the back part, where guests will park and walk to the pond for the ceremony.  Thick layers of mulch were spread around the last remaining tulips (unfortunately they all bloomed too early because of the warm spell we had early in April).   Supplemented the plantings with hostas and will add petunias in the sunny spots and impatients in the shady spots.  Sam also mowed the pond side of the farm in one afternoon!
