Still Alive!

I'm still alive and still stitching, just not much. I'm working on an exchange piece and a little gift piece, so I can't post pics yet. I have been spending oodles of time out in my garden, though!! Here's last year's garden with a few new additions for this year.

I added a trailing lantana in front of my butterfly bush, a May Night salvia and a pincushion plant in the front border. Yesterday we raked away all the mulch from last year and put down a layer of compost from last year's compost pile. Then we reapplied the mulch and fed the plants. I need to add some more as some places are a bit thin on the mulch. I also released some ladybugs because I had some aphids on my coreopsis.
