Today's small jobs in the big picture.....
I'd be the first to admit that I may have planted more than I can handle. I actually ripped out an entire garden and seeded it back to grass a few years back. However, if I do a few smaller things each day, somehow most things get done. Didn't have to work today, so got a few more things done than usual (and it didn't start raining yet).
Today I worked on transplanting tall plants that didn't end up in the back of gardens where they belong. This is what happens when you plant one garden, then expand that garden later, plant heights end up wrong. So, I transplanted cone flowers today, and dug a bunch of them up from areas where they had taken over where they weren't welcome.
Next, was time to trim back the trumpet vine, dh was tired of getting poked in the eye when he mowed the lawn. Also staked a trellis that had started falling over due to the weight of the clematis vine. Needed to get that done before storms come in this evening.
Finally I decided to start working on the stepping blocks out front. Continued dividing and transplanting sedum to fill in the spaces between the blocks. Luckily I have plenty of established plants to divide. The areas filled in were transplanted a few weeks ago.

Well you've certainly been busy haven't you? I really like the sedum between the paving blocks.
It sounds like you have been busy. Thats the one thing about gardens, and non-gardners just don't understand, is there is always something to "fix". But the results the gardens give back is worth every minute of repair! Your stepping stones look great, and is filling in very nicely. Good luck with the on going gardening.
Your paving looks nice with the green sedum in there. You've done a lot in my opinion!
Good job, there are always things to be done.
