It’s Memorial Day weekend and I have big plans to work in the garden. My front yard needs some work since the roses are finished with their first bloom. I need to fertilize them and cut off the dead blossoms.
I redesigned the bedding area as you walk up to my front door earlier this Spring. I had my gardener remove some plants that weren’t holding up their end of the bargain (to thrive and bloom). We planted 3 white iceberg roses and I will be planting impatiens and lobelia in and around the boxwood bordered bed.
I’ve said it before, impatiens are simple to grow and perform without much work and that’s what I love about them. With a busy schedule that is what I’m looking for!
I hope to get to the side and back yard for some maintenance chores but I’m taking it easy—something I have a difficult time doing so if I don’t get those areas finished this weekend I’ve been told the work will be there waiting for me next weekend!
What chores are you taking care of this long 3-day weekend, or are you relaxing the entire time? Good for you!
