I got up and out there early both days and just kept pushing it. I got the largest garden (the “original” one off the patio) weeded and top-dressed with compost, did a bit of edging, planted oodles of plants and patched about a billion holes in our pathetic lawn.
I’m happy with how the terraced garden off the deck is coming in its “leap” year. The fringe tree in the center is just starting to show leaf buds so it’s a bit sad looking right now. I’m very happy with how the Orangeola Japanese maple on the left is doing. I think it must be 7 or 8 years old now.
I also whipped up some homemade deer repellent, which is on the patio cooking in the sun to get extra funky. The funkier the better when it comes to repelling deer and bunnies.
And after all that hard work in the garden, I snapped this photo of maybe my most favorite part of our property: The American beech trees. No matter how much we do, Mother Nature always seems to do it better, doesn’t she?
