Dedication and moving on...

I am going to dedicate this blog to my garden and keep it/use it as a garden journal.
If you want the link to my more personal musings, post in the comments and I will give you the new link.
Of course, email, txt, Facebook, etc etc also work.

Garden waking up

We had some warm days in March, finally, and the plants started to come out of the ground.

It was a big effort weeding the island bed because I didn't put any mulch down last year. I had one bag left over, so gave it a fresh coat in preparation for Spring.
