This morning I told myself that no matter how many blisters I got, how much the sun blazed down on me, or how much stuff the wind blew in my face I was going to clean up the garden. I started with the front rock garden-most of my lavender has come back and the snow-in-summer was hidden under a layer of leaves. My lamb's ears are everywhere, it's amazing how much they spread. By the garage, the scottish thistles that my good friend Carol gave me seem to multiply each year- I love them because with no work on my part, these plants keep coming back year after year. I managed to clean up the front garden and in doing so I found some little surprises.
