Time in the Garden
OHHHHHH! Boy, does it feel good to get back into the garden. We are not out of the woods, mind you. Monday we have 57% chance of snow coming our way (we have become snow statisticians) But for three hours today, we cut and cut and cleaned out the muck and damage which the show left behind. You can see the snow in the background on these photos, but it was warm enough to work without a coat. I trimmed the lower frans to give our palm plant more the look of a tree and cut back the juniper bushes which had taken over. Micha cut into pieces a large plum tree which had come down during the winter -- next year's firewood in the making.
Next up will be raking, new top soil, new mulch in places, and then it will be time to tackle the back yard -- but because of the shade back there we still have over a foot of snow. We did a good amount of cutting, though, which yielded a large pile.
