This past weekend, Memorial Day in the US, ushered in Summer. This meant a three day weekend for most workers, including both of us. It was time to garden. So, we cleaned up the front beds, pulled dying plants, mulched, and installed a permanent edge strip around the beds to keep the grass on one side and the mulch on the other. We had some significant damage to a few of the plants, so cut them way back to encourage new growth.One of the things that really caught our eye after this winter is that several of the plants displayed the best flowers we have seen in our three years. We arrived after much of the flowering had completed (August), but the next two years were not overly amazing. This year, after the harshest year in decades, the flowers just popped. We’re enjoying every bit of it and doing our part to have the same sights in the front of the house next year!
