Cleanup season

I was going to post a picture of some early sprouts coming up, but there aren’t any. However, a stroll around the backyard revealed that there were other things that I could do: pull more leaves and twigs out of the pond (and pat myself on the back for the lack of string algae), pull out some dead annuals to toss on the compost heap, and prune off a dead branch from one of the Skyrocket junipers. Now, of course, I see lots more yard cleanup I could do: pruning the Annabelle hydrangeas (which are currently half-pruned by the ice and snow of winter), redistributing the pebbles in the pond so the liner doesn’t show, and so on. Since it’s going to be a cold weekend, though, I might just go to the flower show instead.

    Good luck with your planting! I really need to get some plants for the rain garden I put in last August, but it’s gonna have to get above freezing before I can even start thinking about seeds and flowers….
