The past two days have been sunny and warm enough to be outside for gardening projects. Most of my time has been spent on cleanup, yanking away the tangles of dead leftover leaves on hosta, day lilies, and hollyhocks. A big chore that I’ve been delaying, tearing off last year’s morning glory vines from the deck, has … More Spring Cleaning In The Garden
