Just when I was making headway on all of the gardens, the storm last week produced winds which brought down hundreds of small branches and leaves. I must have hauled out 15 wheelbarrows full of sticks and leaves. Even the smallest of branches fell to the forest floor – some going right through my hosta leaves. The small holes are not from slugs – but decorated by Mother Nature! Then, the next storm on this past Tuesday, we
measured 3 1/2 inches of rain in our gauge.
The gardens are all weeded, most have received a light application of fresh mulch – just a few left to go – and the garden art has all been strategically placed which produces a smile no matter which way you look!
After all, this is what it’s all about!
Today, I finally took a day off and some of the crew came out and hauled some mulch and refreshed the red rock on our paths in the main hosta garden.
I installed the mulch around my miniature hosta area – and then brought out the gnomes! This is my favorite area – creating a little gnome village in amongst the “giant” hosta plants!
