A day in the garden

Or two days rather ! Two days of warmth and sun , a chance to get out and tidy up all dried up mess . No snipping needed , just a gentle yank and the crispy stuff comes away . The grasses will need some more pulling , I usually brush through it with a stiff rake.  The rake is handy for pulling all the dead wooly Stachy up as well.






My drawf mondo lawn is thickening up . 


So much of this about 


These Carex  are moving this year  , they looked a mess all summer.

More messy Carex 

A big clump of Stachys which will get good racking over. It thins it out as well.

The dreaded chopping down of this one ....maybe next warm day.

  1. I loved the picture of the back corner with the sunlight streaking in. It gives me hope spring will eventually arrive.

    2. We had one perfectly beautiful spring day today and I HAD TO WORK! We went to a restaurant with an outside patio just to be outside. Tonight storms are moving in again and it will rain all day tomorrow - on my day off!

  2. I kind of gave up on Carex last summer...they just DID NOT do well in that hot, dry weather, unfortunately :-(

    1. I would too, if I didn't have so many . They self seed every where and I can't be bothered to pull them out.
      They are useful in the winter though, if I only went out more to enjoy them.
