RE: comments on today's topics.. in a nut shell

I know how you feel.  It seems so easy for Mother Nature to get ahead of us,
doesn't it?  I pulled a full bag of weeds today from beds that were weed
free last fall.  And I just took care of the two long driveway garden beds.
I'll be sore tomorrow, but today I feel GREAT!

I haven't had a shot at the patriotic garden (which is bringing in a lot of
positive comments this year as things really are seeming to bloom red, white
and blue all together instead of slightly out of phase like it did last
year.  I think I have some photos, but haven't had time to download them.)
The daffodils and other spring ephemerals have and are outdoing themselves.
Just as the leaves of the narcissus are beginning to wane, columbine
(aquilegia) are catching up to the strap-like leaves and hiding as their
buds and blossoms are starting their spring show!  One would have thought I
planned it like that! LOL!!!  

Oh, and thanks for reminding me to plant those daylilies when I get home
from work tomorrow!  Then I need to start a new lasagna bed because I'll be
out of space for new things once again!  (Thank goodness I've got plenty of
grassy areas Bill won't mind me using up.)

I didn't even get the fall cleanup done last fall!  I planted a new 30
foot long bed last spring, summer and fall as well as a few other
smaller projects.  Renovating and enlarging my mom's old gardens was not
high on my list, but as I've purchased or traded for more daylilies, I
need more garden space in the sun.  So, I'm doing things the hard way!
I'm just about finished cutting down old foliage and raking leaves!
Ivy's overtaking my woods and trees, my hedges are too tall, some dead
branches and trees need to be cut down, I've got to repair the fence....

Meet me in the garden!
