You remember those "begats" don't you. They're most often remembered as Biblical genealogy, but if you have a garden you know the real weight of "begats. It's what happens when you have just one little thing you want to do today.
Like clearing out this corner.
Last weekend I cut off all the branches.
And Friday I cut down the last of the trunk and dug [quite] a big hole for a lovely new 'Emerald' arborvitea.
And that started the begats.
So, I dug out the overgrown daylilies and mondo grass. Trimmed up the spirea.
And pried out the stones to add sand underneath and reset them.
And, now I need new ground cover, or at least some shade loving perennials for spring. Guess that begets some reading of catalogs over the winter.
That's not all bad.
