Today I created a new curve at the beginning of a new arbor to invite the walk of a new path. I planted lilacs to frame the corner along with a clematis vine called, “Niobe.” Hopefully Niobe will adorn the arch beautifully.
Also worked my arms hard by edging several hundred feet so that once mowed, the yard has a finished look.
Tuesday May 15th
I started clearing a new bed today of years & years of undergrowth. Always hardest part is preparation of a bed before planting. So many saplings to meet the axe before my shovel can create. I weeded and pruned in a gentle rain today, and though wet, found work pleasant.
