I remember way back when, when the daffodils were in bloom. The profusion of yellow blossoms made me smile as I drove down the driveway. They were lovely…until they were not.
When I went to the garage to tie up the stems, I couldn’t find my garden twine. I did finally make it to the hardware store, but in the intervening weeks, they’ve turned brown, so all i had to do was cut them off.
Doesn’t this look much better?
I staked up on if the lilies that had been stepped on and took other broken flowering bits inside. I didn’t clean my up all the wood and debris; I figured I’d wait till the deck guys have finished up.
Despite all, these are some beautiful flowers.
And it took less than a half hour, three trips to the compost, and two dead slugs to get here.
You can check out why I keep those silly daffodils here.
Or maybe you’d like to remember with me how Sweet Cocoa helped me plant those lilies.
What’s blooming in your garden? I’d love to see pictures.
