First of all I'll show you a couple paint jobs that needed doing while the weather was still bearable.
With all the rain we have had there seems to be no end to the trimming. I have buzzed the fire bushes, cut back the dogwood, and trimmed some of the ivy away from the 14 windows on the house it affects. I'm doing what I can to keep up but there is still one project that is haunting me.
Originally this was Vinca vine, tulips and day lilies. Then the Vinca went crazy and so did the most horrible prickly weeds. Too much to weed with 23 days over a 100 degrees last year.
I thought suffocating it and starting over might be the way to go. I left the butterfly bush and the monkey grass out of it for now.
FYI: I usually cut the monkey grass once a year in the early Spring. Not sure what to do with it this year. It is barely June and it is billowing out of the ground and spreading way too fast.
That's my update on the outdoor activities except for planting flowers in all the containers and keeping them watered. Next post we will go back inside where hopefully I will have material for a fresh post.
