The Pain, the Agony
Green (and redish) leaves everywhere. Wonderful, intense foliage preparing for that which I can hardly await any longer. A few daffodils here, a few poppies and anenome there, camellias (my saving grace for the past few months) are losing their last blooms now), and ... aside from the Carolina Jasmine exploding in yellow, the garden is just ... foliage.
This past weekend I spread my tiny handfuls of continuous release granule fertilizer around all the roses. I should have mulched already, but know I'll catch a time break in a weekend(s) soon.
Excitement for the week (season!) is a new lawn mower - my first ever self propelled, with 190cc engine. Holy moley, what a difference a self propelled lawn mower makes. My acreage with knee high foxtails doesn't look so ominous now.
Right now, the garden holds so much hope. So much promise. I'm so impatient.
