My oldest daughter considers herself the Master Gardener hereabouts. So, after we took down a large poplar tree out front, which left a barren spot in the shrub bed, she consulted with her Daddy, and decided she needed to find something to fill the void.
Off she went to the local garden center, and returned with a spirea, and a hydrangea. She promptly recruited Ryan to help with the hauling.
Then it was time to position the plants, by which she meant Ryan was to dig holes while she supervised.
It did seem like a good plan.
Ultimately, Dan and Mark came out to join the planting party, but by then the photographer had wandered back indoors to work.
