Gardendote of the Day 2013-04-28
First really warm spring day; finally, I sat out in my the garden. This shot is just a little bit raggedy:
Shows differences from last year to this:
1. Lots of leaf mulch, simply because I let my schedule get out of control and didn't put the garden to bed. Then again, nature doesn't do that, so we'll see how that turns out.
2. Also under the heading of loss of control, I didn't cut back the raspberries, so they are overgrowing the flowers. But I don't think it's a bad thing; in fact, I find it attractive.
3. The "crocuses" are quite invasive.
4. The iris, given to me by Card Carrying Buddhist, are also coming up. I love these iris, they are heirlooms and quite beautiful. I don't imagine the raspberries will leaf out and steal sun from them, but if so, farewell raspberries!
