Garden Cleanup Day
There are gardeners who slip out into the garden even on chilly days in late winter. Not me! I'm pretty passionate about my garden, but I just can't take the cold. I need a warm day to make it work for me. Today was finally the day!
I'm not sure I've ever got this much cleanup done in early March. I went out to trim down the ornamental grasses, and just kept going. Now I am ready for the garden season to begin.
Oh the grasses did get trimmed down, the roses were pruned, the butterfly bushes were cut back, and all the dead foliage from last year has been cleared away. Everything is fresh, clean, and ready to go. And see how the garden rewarded me for my hard work?
Green things are coming up everywhere. Finding buds and blooms was like treasure hunting!
It felt wonderful to be back out in my garden once more on such a beautiful day. Now I am revived and renewed by the early arrival of spring. I've waited for this all winter!
