This was my yard a few days ago. This is the third day of sunshine but only the first day to be warm. Today was a day made for working in the yard. I put sunscreen on my face, put my jeans on and went out side. There are things you will need to take out side with you. Gloves, I cannot stand to get dirt under my nails. A good pair of clippers to cut dead flowers, by this time my Hyacinths blooms had fallen off. Do not let the seeds form this takes the strength from next year's blooms, leave the leaves alone until they start to die. They are making next years blooms. Wear a hat and sunscreen.
Gerber Daisies I would have to replace. I may have to buy one or two pink ones.
You can see I have not clean up good. Still have pine cones in the bed and pine needles on the flowers, however I will get there.
That was just from the walk. I stopped counting buckets.
You can see all those leaves and lots of grass.
I quit just about here. The Bermuda grass got so bad, I could no more. Carrel brought over his weed killer and mop. There is still some more, we will use a spray and a milk jug. I will show you what we do.
Carrel has weed killer in the bucket and he is using a sponge mop to kill the grass around the out side of the beds.
I have started putting down the newspaper here.
I hope you have enjoyed this blog page and maybe learned something. Thank you for watching my garden grow and bloom, and you will grow one also. Happy gardening from Carrel and I, Juanita
