Yard Work & Hanging Baskets

The temperature got up in the high 60's today so we did some planting. While working on Hanging Baskets, I took down the Wind Chime that has been near the front door and took it back to the corner of the house on the deck. It does make a pleasant sound but I'm not sure if it will effect the birds coming to our feeders or bother the neighbor's dog. We planted over 40 plants in hanging baskets and others at various places around the yard. We put some fresh soil in each basket but mostly used the material that was in last years baskets. We got them watered down, hung and some compost spread around those that were planted in the ground. Elaine even planted some Snap Dragons on either side of the Climbing Black Eyed  Susan that we planted yesterday. We even had time to relax with a Pina' Colada as we watched California Chrome win the Preakness at Pimlico. It will be exciting to see if he can win the Triple Crown when the Belmont Stakes are run on June 7th. There hasn't been a Triple Crown winner since Affirmed in 1979 though nearly a dozen have won the first two legs since then. California Chrome was such a favorite today, but he only paid $3.00 for a win ticket.
