The last two days have been beautiful, maybe a little windy, but nice and warm.
I finished the Cellar Bed Clean up. Well, you're never really finished; the weeds don't allow it.
It is looking much better; I can actually see the daffodils. So far there are three separate varieties in bloom. There are more to come on later.
This may be Ice Follies
There is a white quince just beginning to bloom and the Kumson Forsythia is barely budding out. It has never bloomed heavily since I planted it several years ago.
The white clematis on the left end of the middle of the bed is beginning to leaf out.
I cleaned the grass bed by firing the grasses. I should do this in February before anything greens up. As it is, I scorch some iris and sedum and the back half of the white buddleia....I can never remember it. It does create a huge hot blaze for just a few seconds. I had the water hose handy and wet down all the bed before I began. There are no bulbs in that bed.....maybe there shouldn't be unless I fired it in December.
I mowed all the front and west yards just to nip the weeds before they set seed and cut back 6 clematis. Also made some inroads on the Well House Bed.
Total Time Spent: 4-5 hours. I want to keep a rough total of time spent gardening...just because.
We got 8 eggs the last two days.
