As well as cleaning up the yard, I have also marked out the expansion of the garden for this year. I only expand it a little each year as the plants multiply. I will need a lot of new soil for the new part as well as topping up the existing garden.
Then I took a closer look at my garden and was quite pleased to see the tulips, daffodils and hyacinths that I planted in the fall are all coming up. Also there are a lot of new shoots on most of the perennials that I planted last year.
Spring is finally here!! I know we can still expect some nasty weather but this past week has been wonderful. It is so nice to be out in the garden again.
