Spring is here!
Well, it's been here for a bit now. Even though the calendar told us so just a few days ago, spring has sprung hard 'round here. The temps have been crazy high . . . near record highs.
No complaints, though.
I've been ready.
Well, I do have one complaint.
I don't know if it's because of the super-mild winter we had, my not getting to the beds last fall due to my back injury, or what, but the weeds have all but taken over most of my garden beds.
The herb garden's been hit hard.
Look at that mess. It almost makes me want to cry.
I think I'm going to have to admit defeat.
I'm giving in.
Throwing in the towel, or spade maybe I should say.
I can't do it anymore. Dealing with the weeds in that garden has been a huge pain. I've been having trouble the past couple years keeping the weeds down. I'm not fighting any more. My herb garden will be no more very soon. And ya know, I'm not that upset by it. I think I'm really ready for a little less work out there.
I've already dug up the lavender plants and replanted them in a little border bed next to the shed. I know they look kinda dead, but they're alive and well. They just haven't regained their pretty green yet.
There's a few more plants I'm going to save from that garden, then it's getting doused with weed killer, tilled up, and sewn with grass seed.
The weeds have been bad, but I do have some favorite plants coming up nicely here and there. After spending most of last weekend cleaning the beds, cutting down dead growth, weeding, dividing, etc., there's still quite a bit more to do. I'll get to it . . . eventually ;o)

So much work.
Before going, I had to share the cutest little garden flag I just bought.
Isn't it adorable!
Thanks for visiting!
