Memorial Day Weekend

Cloudy and threatening all day, humid, 70s, but no real storms.  A brief sprinkle came through late in the afternoon.

Saw a hummingbird at the feeder today!

Finally, today, the last of the 6 yards of soil was used up, spread about in low spots in the gardens.  I cleaned up the tarp, washed down the pavers, and we now no longer have a pile sitting at the top of the driveway.  We had previously moved about a yard or two to a spot in back of the spruces, and are keeping that covered for any future uses.

So, all the major garden tasks are done as of Memorial Day.  Now all that is needed as summer arrives is some mulch, and ongoing weeding, watering, and minor tending.  Just as planned.

I'm liking everything... except the very end of the new garden along the west walk.  I still want another tree to finish the "allee" feel as you get to the corner.  Something to frame the maple in Meadow's Edge as the walk turns.  Must be small and architectural!
