It is a beautiful day in the neighbourhood. The sun is shining and it was a perfect morning to go out into the garden.
I have not been active in the garden for some time and it really shows. Too busy, too tired, too frustrated with the enormity of the whole job.
No good excuses.
I am taking it one small area at a time.
I went out this morning with the goal of cleaning out one small garden bed next to my front porch.
The remains of my Sedum Autumn Joy, a perennial sweet pea, a lavender, geraniums, Lucifer Crocosmias, a lovely pink Gaura that deposits its pink petals on our legs when we go down the steps to the driveway.
Looks stark now, I know, but soon it will fill back in. For two years now we have had little chickadees nesting in that decorative bird house. We hear them peeping when we come in and out of the front door.
We have a ways to go before summer. I hope I have the rest of the garden beds cleaned up by then. Sigh.
