More cold nights lately with temperatures getting near freezing. Not bad during the day though. Good temperatures for working in the garden. I've been so busy outside this past few days. By late afternoon yesterday my body was aching so I decided that in the interest of being able to go out at it again today, I'd better give it up. I often think when looking around that I've gone far beyond my capabilities in making so many gardens. In fact yesterday while digging up some sods I was wondering how much longer I could do this and would at some point, if I didn't want it all to go to pot, would have to hire someone this time of year to do the work for me.
This morning I'll tackle what my mother calls the "rock" garden. It's become completely over grown. When it's cleaned up, I have a few buckets of compost left that I'll dig into the soil there. I have to admit that I do get excited when I have a challenge like this and can't wait until it's looking good once again.
A few of the early plants are in bloom and it looks like the black currant bush will be laden down with berries once again.

There's a tiny fairy there among the rocks.
