If you are not a gardener ? ... avert your eyes and pass this post because it is not pretty.
It is down right scary in fact .... for anyone that doesn't understand what happens in Spring.
Scary as in these pictures
Barren wasteland from some toxic spill right ? ... except for a few plants that refuse to still hold on to their winter clothing and look dead ... as a door nail ?
My Christmas fern .... some heuchera (that tease me because you know they have to be replanted INTO the earth because of that little "heave ho" trick they do .. so irritating but also so predictable you have to gibve them credit for doing something you can count on each year.
I'm thinking this is "London Fog" because it is a single flower ... I went a bit over board with cutting back foliage in hopes of new fresh "cosmetically" correct looking greens to come ?
I am afraid my new Ramapo rhododendrons from last year are not feeling well though.
I couldn't find the anti-dessication? spray in time to protect them ... I planted them for husband because he really enjoyed the ones in Holland that he saw ... only time will tell I am sorry to say .. fingers crossed !
All in all ? ... things are normal for what the garden has gone through ... so I should not complain.
The new rain barrel "Mr. Head" seems to blend in and is happy in it's new position in life ...
Now I need to get to work ... fresh soil, compost, fertilizer and a lot of TLC forthwith !
