Today I accomplished quite a bit of work out in my yard!
I trimmed my lilacs back. It appears that they have never been trimmed before. I didn't really know what I was doing, but I had about 20 bushes to practice on! LOL Most of them turned out just fine. A few look like a shorn lamb. Poor things! I pruned the suckers away from the plants up on the hill, but I didn't feel like climbing up into the hill to get the tops; I'll get them better next spring!
I went to the nursery and got my tomato plants, and while I was there I got a few perennials. I got a shasta daisy, two carnations, and a dwarf bleeding heart that blooms all spring and summer. I'm hoping they take off! I planted them along with a few mums I have, some gerbera daisies, and an echinacea plant I got from my neighbor.
Next up: my vegetable garden! I think that will happen on Monday!
