We have worked our butts off!
Truly....and we still have much to do...just a little slower than most people!
I love gardening and a few years ago discovered flowers. I know....just a few years

I plant herbs, flowers, and vegetables! I love to make new additions to all
the types every year and wait with bated breath for the old flowers to
raise their sleepy heads and bloom!
front perennial & herb garden which we've been working hard at
cleaning up for Spring Blooms. Keep in mind that many of the flowers
have not yet bloomed and still have a few weeks before they do here in Southern
Ontario. The second portion which you may have seen in rough form in
my Greenhouse Hell posting, is about halfway complete, including a move
for the Greenhouse to a shadier spot. Keep an eye out for my posting on this secondary section of our front yard to come out soon!
I have quite a few photos, so please bear with me!
One of the most important things ( I believe) you can do for your perennial
garden bed is to spread mulch. It definitely keeps the weeds to about one third of
what they'd normally be. We started about a month ago working the flower
beds we should have cleaned in the fall last year. UGH! I will for sure this year!
