Saturday Gardening

You might remember what my lavender looked like last year…

Well, I am hoping it will end up just as pretty and full this season…

So today between baseball games,

I will be out here weeding and cutting back the dead ends from last year.

It looks like quite a project

but really needs to be done.

And I think I will also be weeding the other beds too.

These things just pop up out of nowhere don’t they?

We’ve had a lot of rain these past few days.

At least today is sunny and warm!

Are you planning any outdoor activities
 this weekend?

Enjoy your day!

    Those weeds do some to be a gardeners full time project! I just spent about 6 hours over the past 2 days weeding both the front and back gardens and am looking forward to getting outside and enjoying all my hard work.I love your lavender! and cant wait to see it come back. I have a lavender question for you….since it loves kind of dry soil do you mulch around it?
