24 March: soggy garden

I did not mind the wind and rain because I was still recuperating from a cold. A weather break in the afternoon did inspire a walk through the garden.
Trailing Rosemary by the greenhouse
Reseeded hot mustard. Our neighbour Devery loves these!
The edges and the back lawn were soggy.
Fresh rainwater for Smokey
No campfire anytime soon.
I imagined the satisfaction of pulling the huge shotweeds in the bogsy wood.
I imagined the moss looking prettier with the weed grass gone.
I imagined this bed clipped and weeded.
Physocarpus ‘Dart’s Gold’
Looking north. Allan had mowed between storms.
Leycesteria ‘Golden Lanterns’. I imagined it deadwooded.
I imagined three pallet compost bins here.
The epimidium’s old leaves should be clipped by now.
New growth on new boxwoods.
White bleeding heart in front garden
Happy to see some sprouts at base of melianthus plus plenty of Anthryscus ‘Raven’s Wing’
Weather bowed tulips
I imagined moving all this debris to three new compost bins.
View from next door of two storm flags at the port.
The rain came back.
Back inside I went with my only accomplishments imaginary ones.
Started a new book about the modern world.
Allan had a quiet puttering sort of day with just these photos:
His secondary boat was mucky from just sitting.
He wanted it clean so he could park it without shame at the Black Lake Yacht Club, here shown in January.
All spiffed up:
A brief break in the late afternoon rain:
And a sunset.
