I am not a gardener. I don't enjoy anything that involves digging in the dirt, worms or bugs. But I do want my little house to look pretty. So I'll give it another try.
I'm slowly digging out the dead stuff and weeds and getting closer to planting new
Soon this patch of mud will be the new home for my dappled willow. On the other side of the step I still have some digging to do. There is a dead rosy bush with ridiculously deep roots and a dead potentilla on the far right.
At least the tulips are pretty. To the left I plan to plant a hydrangea and I have a euonymus for the left.
I also broke down and bought a new lawn mower with adjustable wheels. Now my lawn will look as good as my neighbors. Look how nice and close it cut the grass?
I hated spending the money but I was so happy with the results I think it was worth it. I've complained about that old mower since I moved in. The sellers left it for me which I appreciated but it was time to retire it.
The weather for the rest of the weekend is iffy so not sure if things will get planted yet. And I desperately need to scrape and repaint my window frames so if it's not raining in the morning I plan to get right at that. I should have done it last year but........procrastinated. Lol
