We have had gorgeous spring weather here for awhile now...the problem when that happens, is that I get the itch to plant my garden...the problem with that is that after days approaching 80 degrees, we are under a freeze warning at night this week.
Restraint is needed.
Last weekend, I did get a bit of prep work done in the beds. I watered the herbs that survived the winter...
I also tackled a flower bed that I always seem to neglect for some strange reason. It is always cool and shady here and overlooks the back yard...not sure why I forget it. But I do.
The spot that is clean of weeds...
...and the spot in the upper corner that has been dug lower that the patio cement...
...well, those are the areas that the dogs like to nap in...nice and cool. The dogs don't seem to mind if there are (or were) plants in the way, either. I needed to remedy that.
My helper, complete with her pink boots ready to dive right in.
I dug the Calla Lilies and Clivia up and set aside to divide.
We had some extra fence panels from the corrals and with some bolt cutters, I went to town.
Once the bed was clean, I set the fencing in the bed and cut it to size. I also had an azalea that I needed to plat, so I marked where I wanted it on the fencing and cut a square out as well.
I replanted the Callas and Clivia and am good to go.
This will now keep the dogs from digging and hopefully be lush and pretty soon...the chickens are happy.
