I got out into the yard yesterday and started cleaning the leaves away from the edge of The Rock Garden, but the next thing I knew, I had cleaned the leaves from inside it, too. I should have waited a little longer, but I couldn't help myself. It looked so good. I had two clumps of daffodils to burst into bloom in The Cement Garden as I was preparing to give it up for the day.
Naturally, it was freezing last night. I hate that it has turned chilly again.
Mission for Today: Refrain from de-leafing all the other flower beds -- at least for another week or so.

I really don't think I have seen the wind blow as much as it has the last couple of years here in Florence. We used to get some nice kite flying weather but now it is just a nusiance.
