I also widened my little planting area from 4 inches to 12 inches around the picket fence in the play yard and planted sweet peas. It has bricks etween it and the grass so it will be a cinch to mow around.

Next week I should have flowers I can share from this year! My daffodils and tulips are ready to pop.
