I started the day off yesterday pulling the creeping jenny off the walkway in front of the Back Flower Bed. It was an easy task in the beginning, but the longer I went and the hotter it got, the harder it became. I finally finished. My bender-overer was about pooped out, so I stood up for awhile and cut back the butterfly bush and some of the big forsythia that is in front of the potting shed. Then I remembered that I wanted to get my hummer feeder out. Just a tradition to have it out on St. Patrick's Day. I have the one in the front, but not the back.
The lorapetalum did better this year than ever before. I'm not sure why, but she is really putting on a show.

Isn't it great to be able to work outside. Generally this time of year we are chomping at the bit and fighting cold and rainy weather. I feel there will be a cold spell before spring is gone.
