What I have to show for a day's work
I have two areas that have received nothing but neglect for the last two years. These are the areas you don't see when I post photos. I couldn't stand the mess any more, so I decided to shovel prune all the trees that didn't get pulled when they were young, and cleaned out the blackberry patch. Nothing hurts worse than going to pick a berry and catching a thorn off a dead branch from years' past. It was quite a hassle to eradicate all the weeds and trees, but will be well worth the effort later in the year.
Most of this....
Came from here....
Since I was left with a pretty blank slate, it didn't take long to take a trip to the local nursery to start filling in the holes.

Wow!!!! you empied it but it sure looks great now.
Well done, and a well-deserved reward at the end of the hard work too! How does that space look now?
Hat off to you, PL! You are doing lots of work there.
I don't envy you having to clear all that out!! You certainly got a lot done. I can't wait to see what you're going to plant now you have all that clear space!!
I've had to clear the prickers stuff before so I can sympathize with you on that one. Well done! I'm glad you rewarded yourself at the end of the day PL. Yes, we need to see more pics now please.
I'll be sure to add new pics in a few weeks after it has a chance to grow a bit. My neighbor gave me a hibiscus that she's been growing in the shade, so I decided to plant it there. Our grocery store also decided to sell me 2 Patriot hostas for $5, so I got a few starts of those and a flat of petunias and coleus to fill in the rest for this year. I'm not sure how the petunias will do with all the shade, but I felt like trying it.
