This week in the garden - #50
This week there can be no doubt that spring has definitely sprung in my yard. True, we may still have a few cool nights ahead of us but the warmer weather is here to stay. There'll be no more frost this winter.
It's rose pruning time. I plan to spend a good portion of my gardening time this weekend working on that chore. I won't be pruning 'Old Blush' though, because she is in full bloom already.
I spent much of the day today clearing beds in my vegetable garden. It won't be long now until it's time to get those plants for the spring garden going and I want to be ready. I'm hoping that if I can get just a little assistance perhaps I can finish that job this weekend.
I'm greatly heartened by the fact that we do continue to get occasional rain. The terrible drought which we endured for two years has been broken, at least in my little corner of the world. This week we got half an inch of rain and the rain barrels are again running over. We know that this good fortune likely will not last long-term, but please allow me to enjoy it while it does!
