Another weekend - bit by bit

Between warming, drying, coffee-drinking sessions, I managed to:

  • work on the pebble border (a tedious task I should probably give up on, ROI-wise)
  • continue removing butterfly bush on sidewalk strip
  • weed the walk between the raised beds
  • move blue-flowering groundcover plant (name?) from North strip to under ash tree
  • weed the crocosmia bed
  • begin reclaiming* North fence strip
  • thin arugula seedlings
  • check recently transplanted lime cedar
  • go to Garden Fever for: sweetpeas, bachelor buttons, parsley
  • weed winterberry area
* Reclaim - when "weed" isn't a strong enough word.


Usually the mugwort comes up, blooms, and begins to fade before I even realize it's there. But with the early warm weather this year, I'm out in the yard early. Early enough to see the magic mugwort.
