Another beautiful sunny day but rather cool with an icy wind. Took a trip downtown to collect a book I had ordered from the local used book store. i like to try and give my business to local stores. I paid for it on line and picked it up from the front step. It is a book club book, “Washington Black”. Very happy to get it as the library is closed and i prefer not to read electronic books.
Got out in the garden later, now I have finished the one bed, i am trying to sort out the other front bed. This one is rather more difficult as it has a lot of plants in it as well as bushes. I am getting rid of some of the iris and hope to get rid of a lot of the day lilies. We shall see. It is also riddled with weeds, definitely a work in progress. Max’s tree ( a crab apple) is covered in tight buds, Katya’s tree ( a Ginko) is not showing any signs of life as yet, it is still early for it. Our Lilac bushes are really doing well this year. They were given to me by a young woman who joined the WI a few years ago, (she has since moved on). They were only small, but although they have flowered before, this year they look to have grown a lot. I am looking forward to the flowers.They are planted to screen the parking lot from the garden.
