Finally a real day in the garden - well two and a half hours. My body won't take more than that without some training!
Cleaned out two whole beds (small ones). I mean deadheading, trimming, pulling weeds, spreading Preen (sorry, organic gardeners!) and Plantone. Completely done and ready for mulch.
It was a lovely morning - warm enough to shed the sweater - and not too sunny, so I could work without really sweating. There are many signs of the hot summer and snowy winter we have had. Many plants died and some completely disappeared, so I have the opportunity to redesign a lot of small spaces. The two I worked in today were particularly hard hit because they are so far from a water source that they don't get much except what Mother Nature provides. I need to look at more plants that can get along without much moisture. I moved some sedum and will look for portulaca grandaflora (moss rose) when the spring flowers appear at Big Blue Box.
Overall, a great day.
