While driving down to see Cousin Molly in Birmingham, AL, Uncle Tom and Aunt Care made a stop in Huntsville to visit with us and meet Megan for the first time. We really enjoyed spending quality, one-on-one time with them. My parents arrived for a 5-day visit a few days later. As usual, we found ourselves working on DIY projects, including building a raised vegetable garden, planting some flowers and a tree, building a new garden off the master bedroom, and moving bushes and plants around to make more room in the flower beds.

Mom built a new garden area off the master bedroom.  The rose bushes aren't handling the rocky, clay soil very well.

Our Double Knockout Roses are doing awesome.  Actually they're doing too well; the bushes are having a difficult time supporting the weight of all the blooms.
