No, my garden doesn't look like this at the moment. These photos were taken in the Spring 2005. It looked much like this last Spring too, but since then I've had 10 months of not being very interested in gardening at all. I'm not sure whether it was the discouragement of the drought, or what it was.
However, I spent several hours today in the garden - cutting back some things and pulling other things out altogether, dividing and planting some things, and just enjoying pulling weeds from lovely damp soil, and wondering "could it possibly stay like this all through summer?"
No, of course it won't, but hopefully we'll have a good Spring which is only 3 weeks away. And the best part of all is that I'm really looking forward to getting out in the garden again tomorrow. It's still too early to cut back a lot of plants even though they look scrappy and frostbitten, but they need that top covering to protect the roots. Still, there's plenty of other things to do. Sooooo - look out garden, HERE I COME !!!
