This past weekend, we added two and one-half tons of pea gravel to our stone paths and walkways, cleaned up and edged garden beds. And, one more thing...we got another fountain going on the back patio. What did you do for fun?
Raking up leaves, pine needles and other debris out of the garden beds and, especially giving them nice, crisp edging with the old and trusty garden edger (isn't that a clever name?) once again spruces them up quickly and provides the entire yard a with bit of a face-lift after winter. Now, all we need is a little rain and some warmer weather to encourage some spring growth and new color. This cold and dry March, so far, is proving to be stubborn in handing the keys over to more spring-like days but that doesn't mean there isn't work to be done in anticipation of the garden rewards to come.
