Just Another Day In Paradise
Two beautiful days to work in the garden. Yesterday we weeded and planted a few new spring things. Today, the lawn is being mowed for the first time in 2010.It smells delicious.
But even more delicious is the viburnum carlesii, Korean spice bush, the whole back yard is heavily scented. And in the front the Carolina jasmine is blooming. I'm intoxicated.
Here's a snap of one of my favorite corners, it holds soon to be blooming iris, catmint, a clump of sparkle grass ,sedums and succulents and a Japanese maple given to us as a seedling, plus a random bulb plant or two ( given to us by the friendly neighborhood squirrels).
Our county will deliver our leaf mulch on April 15th. Gotta love them, all year they pick up piles of leaves, christmas trees, tree branches, turn them into mulch and then give it back. Gardening, the gift that keeps on giving.
