The new album on my old web page.
I have the thyme circle edged and weeded and the bench reset higher and further back in its cedar nook. I covered beneath it with cardboard to smother the violets that are very invasive and are getting into everything. This should slow them down a bit. I have weeded out the area along by our driveway and trimmed back heathers, a small spruce, the grass edges.. digging out violets, daisies and grass. I think I may be able to fit a couple of lupines in this area on one side of the black bamboo, and another couple on the other side of the bamboo, near the thyme circle. I moved a black leaf mondo grass, and a black leaved coral bells that were languishing under the bamboo, unseen by anyone, including myself. The yellow/green variegated grass in the area, on the other hand, is seen and is doing well. The colors match the golden color of the decorative oregano that is forming a nice clump next to the thyme circle. These herbs are lovely and actually fairly easy care. Now that these areas are cleaned up I will be adding compost. The plants do so much better with a bit of attention and water.
I got a good nights sleep after all the exercise and late nights tweaking photos. This is as good for me as the maintenance and watering is for the plants.
Dangling participles? I really don't know what they are, but suspect I use them all the time. It is just a phrase that amuses me, and conjures up pictures of long armed monkeys or other gangly critters.
