I was outside at 7am today. I had no idea I would be out there digging, hauling away and replanting until noon. In fact I had no project planned at all. I was just going to move the plants away from the house on the deck so DH could do his yearly house washing.
Moving the deck items took just a few minutes and I decided to take a morning stroll through all the paths. As I entered the new path, I had the spontaneous desire to dig out this mildewed phlox and throw it away.
I have two different colors of phlox here. I don't know if the mildew-coated one was white or purple. I will see when the other one blooms.
A few feet from the phlox is this arbor with some of the Manhattan lilies that grew twice as tall as I expected. They are too close to the path, so I dug them all out.
Back to the once moldy phlox area:
Once I got that done, I removed more lilies from this garden on the opposite side and I began to dig out a small area for another tiny path. I have four pavers left from the other path project and I knew right away where they would go. I need a way to get out to the wooded area without walking through the planted areas, so I decided to add another exit to this path.
It is not done yet because it got too hot to work outside (almost 90 degrees). We will either go out later this evening or tomorrow morning to finish it.
I had planned to go to an arts/crafts show, but I never made it there. Maybe tomorrow as it's a two-day affair.
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
