Mid March and already the first blooms of Spring are becoming a thing of the past. The snowdrops are over- time to divide and proliferate! Hellebores are in full flower to accompany the daffodils and crocus. The tall pieris is smothered in white bells and bumble bees and the candy pink Prunus cerasifera had opened.
I have cut back all the perennials and we extended the prairie bed another 4 metres and after preparing the soil, planted it with more echinacea, achillea, rudbeckia, asters and grasses.
Yesterday’s warm sun felt like a promise of what is to come and the pace of work quickens! On balance I think I’m just about ahead of the weeds but only by a whisker and just about on track with the To Do list. Fingers crossed the weather plays fair for the next few weeks.
