Well I did get out there and garden on Saturday. In fact, I was out there for about 6 hours. And it was another glorious perfect spring day on Sunday too, so I was out for about 4 hours. Saturday I put together some pots an planted some seeds. Then I worked on edging some garden beds and tidying them up. I discovered some extra plants and some plants are missing - like a wonderful viola that should've been up by now and seems to have disappeared under a pile of fern leaves. The only good thing is that the viola likes to travel and I have found little plants in other parts in the yard so I hope they will be able to establish themselves.
I also moved two roses that may have been a mistake. One has been overgrown by the wisteria and couldn't even bloom since it was robbed of light and water - however, thanks to those wisteria roots it was IMPOSSIBLE to dig it out, so I used my fingers to get ahold of as much root as I could and pulled. I sure hope it can regrown in the new place. It'll be so much happier where I moved it.
And that's basically my weekend- almost all of it outside and almost all gardening. But I'm so very grateful for the wonderful weather - it's been a few years that we've had an April like this one. One more day of sunshine and then it's back to rain for the rest of the week. But I sure am looking forward to the Good Friday holiday! And Easter this weekend, I can't believe it's already time for Easter. It's just the two of us, but we'll make it special somehow
