early crocus

The garden is calling me out to play these days. After such a long dark winter and a raw wet early spring we are finally getting  some lovely weather. As is usual at this time of year I am full of big plans, cleaning feeding and mulching the beds as quickly as I can.

 As the beds are cleared out its a good time to look at the bones of the garden and try to notice the areas that need adjusting. I am getting to a place where it looks good even when its naked but there are still some weak spots, it takes a long time to figure out what will work where.

new mulch
I have at least one more weekend of hard labor ahead
