Goodness , I have no idea where the time goes. It is already
Friday Saturday! This week there was so much to do in the garden. The pruning of ‘Annabelle’ hydrangeas & Hydrangea paniculata, along with some Clematis… Still not done with all the ‘Annabelles.’ Every year I have the same lament. When I am pruning I have too many….when they bloom there are not enough!!
Much weeding in the potager where I am growing salad ….delicious! A few stragglers from last years tulips popping up between the lettuce… and much weeding ….
Spring is going forward at breakneck speed, it seems. Viburnum burkwoodii in bloom. If I could share the fragrance, you would know why it is so cherished among gardeners.
It does get large, with a beautiful vase shape. There are several Clematis planted at its feet. Reminders of a lovely day, shared with dear friends, in a beautiful garden.
The new kitty is at the vets with serious upper respiratory infection…….

Breakneck speed is right! So much to do and so little time 😉
Sorry to hear about your kitty – hope all is well soon.
Except for the cat, you are one HAPPY girl.
Garden & Be Well, XO Tara
Sandra your garden is looking absolutely wonderful. I’m envious of all that lovely lettuce. It’ll be months before I see anything close to that. Sorry to hear about kitty, when we adopted our Gino he had the same illness. It took some time but they do recover.
Sandra – in our part of the world – Georgia – which you share, I’ve often felt Spring only lasts some 3 -4 weeks – – then – BANG – it’s summer and then we have to contend with the heat/humidity, etc.
My rule of thumb – best get it all done no later than May 1st or else it’ll have to wait until next year.
Give Kitty a pat and best wishes for speedy recovery.
Sandra, I am hoping kitty gets well. I am surprised you have so much growing. We are so behind the rest of the country. At least there is still time for clean up. Like you, was out today doing just that.
