Spring bulbs are coming up in our garden. The beds are a mess but other than scraping out leaves, I try not to thinking about weeding or really making the plantings look nice. There have been too many years I pulled out something that I shouldn't have, thinking it was a weed. Our yard is bunny central these days. Since there is nothing they can damage, it doesn't bother me because I think they are cute. We have a small rabbit escape hole so they have a way to exit if Teddy takes notices. Teddy loves bunnies, but I don't think she'd actually touch one.
This scraggly looking planter should be OK in a while. Stone-crop is coming back and I will divide it and also plant some flowers in with it. Anything on this fence bakes so only high sun tolerant plants can go here.
Rosemary and lavender came back. Since we offered basil to a friend last year, we don't have any as she pulled it out -- so there is nothing to grow back. This year, the winter was mild enough that I think it would have come back. More is on order.
We have lots of plants to split this year and have also got a stuff on order. We don't put as much time, effort and money as we should into the backyard because we spend so much time at camp. OK, and we are lazy. I have garden envy for the many great efforts I see in our area. But the reality is I am lazy and rely more on perennials and low-effort plantings. It's nice to see so much came back this year!
