Flower Bed Clean-up
I finally quit talking and began doing....I did the Hummingbird Bed outside the kitchen window yesterday.
Quite a few things are poking their heads through the leaves and mulch: 'Robustissima'anemone, daffs, daylilies, iris, heliopsis, and rose campion, also a patch of self-seeded lamium. So far the self-seeded salvias haven't shown themselves or the 4 O'clocks. I think my fall planted mums didn't survive either.
Can you see the tree stump? That was the bird feeder tree. I hated to see it go, but it was an Elm and half dead and DH thought it was dangerous so it went.
They came back later in the morning and ground out the stump. I told him to leave the saw dust and he volunteered to shovel it into my garden cart for me so now I have about two bushels of finely ground sawdust and dirt..great stuff.
I also ended up with a pile of wood chips. They are much coarser than normal but I took them anyway figuring they will break down over the months.
Note: the newly mowed lawn! I think this is early for the first mowing.
