Hello and welcome to Garden Thursday. Mum got bizzy doing things here this week. At least on the one day we didn't have rain. What did she do, she weeded. This cool weather and rain have been so good for those old weeds to grow.
This was all weedy, thistles and such. But there is still lots of this little stuff that has to go. Mum wants to spray stuff on it, but so she doesn't kill the good stuff needs to do it on a no wind day.
Here mum removed the bazillion sunflower plants that the birds had started. It was getting so mum couldn't step without stepping on the plants. Still more to clean up here too.
The far end where mum put the tarp down to kill all the junk underneath. She had picked up one edge to get rid of the standing water puddled up. We don't want to be breeding mos-skeetos here.
Here you can see some of the stuff left but you can also see the huechera or coral bells that are sort of purple.
Then the astilbe, mum can see the start of the flower buds coming. Yay, the weeds didn't win!
Here is the back of the metal monster all filled up, plus more that she still had to shove inside. It got rainy, so mum didn't have a chance to be able to work a bit more on this.
That is is for this week. Love Virginger, Glimmer, Trooper and Fleur.
