Our snow is all gone now and so begins those ugly days between snow cover and spring green. Everything’s brown. And dead. And matted. All the crap people didn’t get around to picking up before snow fell is revealed again.
Also revealed are the bad gardeners among us, who didn’t weed and properly put to bed their gardens before hard frost. Not surprisingly, that includes me.
You need evergreen bushes and things that don’t die in the winter. Most of my stuff is still green and upright with the exception of a very few bushes that will have to be cut back and will come up green again. I’m lazy and like low maintenance stuff.
My husband won’t let me touch the yard.
He planted it in rye this year so he’s been mowing grass all winter long.
