We had a beautiful day today to rake and do garden clean up. It was only about 50º, but with the sun shining it was a perfect work day.
I accomplished a lot - got all of the Sedum Autumn Joy cut down and raked quite a few areas. I hauled about 6 wheelbarrow loads to the compost heap. I am finally in the gardening mood!
I cut back my butterfly bush today. A lot of new gardeners wonder how far to cut a butterfly bush back. I am no expert, but this seems to work for me.
Here is the bush before cutting back
And here is what is left.
I left it a little bit taller than I normally do.
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
