Dirt under the nails, dirt on my jeans, digging in dirt. It has started.
It felt so good to get out in the sunshine on the weekend and start to weed the flower gardens.
Considering that last year it didn’t start at all, I had a bit of work to do.
A full year without weeding meant the garden was overgrown 6 months ago. After everything died off over the winter, it looked terrible.
Two heaping wheelbarrows later, it looks better, but a little bare.
There’s plenty of room to grow. And it seems like the bushes, irises, sedums, tulips and other plants are all alive. So it should fill in quickly.
How are your gardens looking? Have you done any weeding yet?
