Back Again

I'm really going to make an effort to keep this journal updated again. I neglected my gardens all last year after my mother's death, but my gardening obsession is back full force. Yesterday I planted coneflowers (echinacea), After Midnight and Summer Sky, in my front (fairy) garden. I've been working hard to get all the weeds pulled there. It's in not great shape after a whole year of neglect. All the lamb's ear there from my mother's house died. It had thrived for years. So strange. Anyway, I'm going to add lots more perrenials. I even bought some seeds to try. I've never had much luck with direct sowing but maybe this time.

I have roses blooming!
