A break in the rain mean clean up time. With spring fading, and summer blooms taking over, downpours can have disastrous effects. My poor Lupine took it for the team.After a lot of trimming and a peony ring or two later not only was it upright again, but some of my summer flowers that like to attack people on the path of the garden, were also contained. Look at me and my proactive thinking!
There is still a lot of staking to do for this summer. This year I will have my flowers standing upright. Not like last years lazy pregnant summer, where I went for that ‘natural’ look. You know the one. It requires no effort, and you should at all times squint at the garden as to not see the weeds.
This year will be different.
The perpetual moisture that has been feeding the garden lately, has also been encouraging those weeds. So I will probably spend a lot of my free time this weekend trying to clean up the beds. I will stay on top of it!
If only to be occasionally distracted by flowers, shiny things and vegetable gardens.
Sometimes it doesn’t even need to be shiny. Rusty is kinda cool too!
