OK! Garden happy again (pics)
It took a couple of weekends, but I have finally realigned myself with the proper seasons. I am re-energized for the garden now, phew!
I had my handy snowboard colleagues over for a path-making marathon and that went great. Now the backyard reminds me of a garden center, with its fresh, bright woodchips. They are a little glaring right now but they'll soften to an easy grey. I have a few more areas to finish up, but its been too buggy to work back there for any length of time.
Yesterday DH and I put up our new deer fence. It's become impossible to grow veggies without one. I put a lot of flagging tape on it because I fear the sudden appearance of the fence might trip up the baby birds.
Now that the urgent infrastructure work is done, the rest of the garden can shine. And best of all, this energizes me for further work, which is the fun part.
