Schmidt Homestead

Our new home in Woodburn, IL

Monday, March 19, 2007

We got the trailer leveled and anchored on Saturday. It was chilly, but we spent the whole day out there working. We're trying to move as many of the resurrection lilies as we can from the front yard. They were beautiful last year when they bloomed a sea of pink, but the new septic system is going right where they are. We spent most of Saturday digging up and transplanting lilies. I knew there were a lot of them, but there’s got to be thousands out there. I dug and planted until I thought my back might break, and we probably didn’t move a quarter of them. I brought a big box of bulbs home for neighbors who wanted them. We made some measurements in the trailer to see how things were going to fit and how we’d like to change it.
