Saturday morning I cleaned out almost everything from the small rockwall garden area. It feels good to have one area completely done.
Today I attempted to dig out a number of the pink mallow plants that are growing in a very tiny strip between the sidewalk and the garage. They are just too big and unruly for that area, flopping over and brushing against people as they walk on the sidewalk. It is not easy to get rid of pink mallow. If the plant has any age to it, the tap root is very long and well-rooted and is nearly impossible to remove completely. I dug out about six plants as best I could. I will have to wait until next year to see if I did, in fact, get rid of them.
I am so glad you stopped by to visit my garden. I garden in lower northern Michigan (zone 5) in far less than ideal conditions. I have too many pine trees, too much shade, too many rocks, herds of hosta-munching deer and rabbits who think my lilly buds are gourmet appetizers. I am by no means an expert in horticulture or garden design--just an amateur with a shovel and a passion. My garden changes daily during the summer and I will be updating frequently.
During the winter months, I blog about my favorite cold-weather hobby--quilting and just my everyday musings.
I hope you enjoy your visit, and that you will come back soon.
