Garden Notebook–March 13

Checking my previous notebooks, I see that I had aphids on the roses by this time in previous years. No aphids yet, and lots of beautiful new growth on the roses that the aphids generally love. Well…that is fine by me. I used Roundup on weed patch on the south side of the house. It was really ridiculously out of control.

In previous years I put stepping stones in around now. I put a few in every year, because neither my budget nor my work ethic/energy level is very high. That would be a good project while the ground is still soft. I will go see about getting a few tomorrow maybe.

The daffodils are looking so pretty! I just love them. They are the perfect first flower after winter–well, not technically first–the crocuses come first–but the daffodils put the winter blahs on notice.

Enjoying the second half of life. I have three sons who are the apples of my eye and a wonderful husband of 35 years--those are the important things. Long ago, out of the blue, I became a Christian. It was something I never planned on, but what joy it has been. I do website development and I like to read and garden and paint and I love beauty and truth.

    We’re seeing the crocus and daffodils around our house as well. And the bradford pears are about to burst out in bloom as well.

    Jenn probably knows better but I’ve counted at least 5-6 rose bushes around the yard. It’ll be fun seeing what they turn out to be.
