Up the Garden Path
I love clearing up the garden and preparing it for the next season. There’s something refreshing about clearing the ground and digging it over.
Today's chores involved a lot of maintenance - weeding, deadheading, taking off brown leaves, that sort of thing.
A back-breaking task of deadheading the dried up blooms of Alchemilla mollis.
Clearing up the small woodland area at the edge of the garden.
I managed to transfer some of my aggression to those poor trees.
My herbs - rosemary, bay and thyme - doing wonderfully well in the garden.
My ever-present garden buddy, Lolita, keeping me company while I'm up to my neck in muck.
She's usually with me as I worked outside; she would often lazed in the sun and watched me tackling my new project.
