It’s so early in the season, and yet, gardening is based on what the plants are doing, not what the calendar shows. The forsythia two yards away is yellow and almost in full bloom!
I’ve got most of the front garden cleaned up, all the roses and shrubs pruned, and started pruning in the back today. I’ll take pictures once I’ve got them both all cleaned up.One of my first tasks after that will be to move three of the roses to the front garden: it’s getting too shady in the back. I need to get some more shade-loving plants, like hostas, ferns, and astilbe (after I kill all the goutweed).
