Weekend gardening

| No Comments

There was finally nice weather last weekend! Bill and I worked in the gardens Friday evening after work, Saturday afternoon, and Sunday morning. While I played "manager," Bill dug up plants I wanted to replace or that took up space I now want to use for something else (4 blue Agapanthus (Lily of the Nile), 2 Orange Canna Lily, [evergreen bush with pink flowers]).

I made a trip to Home Depot Saturday morning to buy a variety of plants and a new shovel to replace the one Bill broke Friday night while digging up the Agapanthus (wow! I'll never plant those in the ground again - the root system is amazing!). After feeling just fine (better than I remember from last year) during over 3 hours of gardening on Saturday, an asthma attack hit me within 10-15 minutes of working in the moist, shady area of the backyard garden. That ended my gardening for the day - and wiped me out for the rest of Saturday.

On Sunday morning, however, I woke feeling just fine again and tackled an hour and a half of front yard gardening before breakfast. There are still quite a few plants that need to be planted. I hear it's going to be nice again this weekend!
