Seems all I have had time to do is weed or play. Playing has left me with lots of weeding. Am down to two beds that need buttercups removed before they smother the perennials. Today I found bindweed that had traveled into beds via mole tunnels. They had managed to cross under bricks paths so I will be resetting some pavers. Hopefully no small bits escaped my tedious digging search. I have had to cut back all the big sword ferns since the late, heavy, wet snow crushed them. They are late sending up fronds so that task was accomplished in time. Lost an apple tree to the heavy snow and lack of pruning. It got laid down and the other bushes were also snapped off. Cut back huge tree bushes of snowball, mock orange and forsythia. The forsythia is already sending up lots of shoots. It is nice having this old orchard area opened up. especially since the neighbor had several trees that shaded our yard also felled. Not much happening except a few flowers in the woodland garden. The hellebores and primroses are almost past their prime but still a little showy. The trilliums are in full bloom. The BC ginger is trying to take over, and I’ve had to put barriers around to keep this generation of dogs out of the beds. What’s life without a garden to keep you active and enjoying nature in all its variety and change?
