Hello and welcome to a wet edition of Garden Thursday. Lots of rain, which in some ways is good as we had so little rain last summer.
The snow is now 100% gone from our yard, the last little bit went away on Tuesday.
Being so wet, mum can't do much outside this week, but last week after I reported, she got rid of a tree and carpeted the garden.
Here is our little, deaded Alberta Spruce. Mum cut off the outside branches, but the trunk she needs to dig down to get it all. The ground is still a bit frozen. So maybe when it gets dry again she can try to dig.
The while working in the back yard, getting ready to put the carpet down she spied something blue. Her clippers she dropped and never found last fall. So the sat in the snow all winter.
Mum says they cut, but need to be cleaned up to get the rust off and sharpened a bit. She did buy a new clipper.
Here is the black carpet. Mum says it will help keep the weeds from growing and show off the flowers. Plus she talked to the landscape guy to come and mulch. Soon.
