A Trip Up North and Some Gardening

 We took Teddy out to the country this morning to see the Big Puppies. She loves these guys!

 Some of them were far away.

 But some were very close.

 Teddy's nose was pressed against the window.

 I know this is blurry but you can still see the reaction the horse made when it heard the strange noise coming from the car.

 These guys did not like Teddy too much.

 Lots of Teddy's friends live here but they were not out on this pretty Spring day.

 When we returned home I started planting.

 I needed to fill in some spots on the stairs where the phlox grows. Notice all the dandelions?

 Though the phlox grows well on most of these stairs, I have never been able to get it to grow in the corners because of the lack of sun.  So, today I planted mazus there and I am betting it does very well.

This is a part of my lawn where I planted mazus years ago.  It chokes out everything including the weeds.  It has a pretty flower and when it is green, it provides a nice cushion.  Teddy loves to lay on it.  And notice, no dandelions here!
