a lovely time in the garden

I spent a little time in the garden tonight. I'm slowly working through the back, weeding and creating flower beds in the yard. Tonight I cleaned up the bed where my rue plant and my spirea is planted. I need to move the spirea. I put it near the steps on my deck and it just doesn't have room to spread and be pretty.

I started putting in a border using the wood pieces left over from the fence, but I'm not sure if I like it. I'm going to give it a few days before I either finish it or take it out.

I'm very happy with the progress I'm making. I hope to get the vegetable patch tilled in a few days and get some plants in the ground. I still haven't decided what I want to plant, but I'm thinking about trying some things I've never done before. I really want to plant pumpkins and may have enough space, but couldn't plant anything else. We'll see...

I'm going to the local herb festival on Saturday and am making a list of the herbs and plants that I want to add to my collection. My angelica is really getting big and I can't wait to see what happens with it.

Well, I suppose that is all for tonight. I'm quite tired from a long week at work and am probably going to turn in soon.

Hope all is well in your world.

You are very lucky to have a yard to work in. I hope to start a couple container gardens this weekend for my deck. Spring has arrived!
