We had another beautiful Spring day yesterday and I really had no excuse for not getting out to work in the garden...other than working on the computer,lol. So I did get out in late afternoon to do a little work. Winter weeds are everywhere! The first thing that had to be done was to tackle cutting back Miscanthus 'Cabaret'- a not so minor chore that has cured me of wanting to add any more large grasses to the landscape.
Never let anyone tell you that bearded iris are not tough. I dug these and left the clump sitting roadside with a "Free" offering last fall. After a few days with no takers I tossed them on "the pile"- my ever growing mountain of sod and assorted garden trimmings. I can't wait to see them bloom:-)
