I had a crazier than normal crazy moment and invited my high school classmates over for lemonade and cookies as part of our #XL reunion in less than ten days. I didn’t get several of my beds mulched before the winter as I was dividing and moving plants to theme beds when I ran out of warm weather. With all the rain my flower beds are full of weeds. With the tremendous amount of weeding and mulching left, I hired some help last weekend. The problem with hired help is that they aren’t familiar with where your plants are. And if they aren’t a plant lover, really doesn’t care what they pull up or break off even if marked with a plant tag.
With all the weeding, I’ve started compost pile # three. My other two bins are over flowing. Hopefully by the time of our reunion things will be a little more presentable.
Early iris are in full bloom now. Hope you enjoy some of this weeks blooms.
