I went out this morning on a garden mission .. I started at 9:30 and finally had to admit I was totally done in by 2 .. I didn't stop at any point because if you are a gardener who has been locked up in the house all winter .. well, lets just say you can't help but go over board when you finally have a chance to work in your garden ?
I should have taken more pictures of before and after but like I said .. I did NOT stop !
This "pollard" is a bit rough , my poor love .. Staghorn Sumac knows what is coming every Spring and it puts up with it ... growing absolutely gorgeous over the whole season .. how can you not LOVE a tree like this ?
I try to be considerate about its growth where my neighbor keeps a clothes line .. but otherwise it is allowed to "bloom" and grow to its hearts content : )
Smelling the earth .. smelling herbs, even when they have expired a bit ? .. well all of those wonderful scents is the best therapy you could ask for after a long winter.
I know the weather can change on a dime yet .. but for these past few days .. it has been wonderful !! : )
