With two whole rain-free days over 50 degrees, I have made the most of the nice weather. Yesterday my daughter and I finished up weeding the beds, cleaned out the strawberry bed, laid down another bag of bark mulch, and trimmed the candytuft and dead daylily leaves from last summer.
|Cleaned up strawberry bed, only the strong were left behind. Still looks pretty messy.|
One of the reasons I didn't join in the garden frenzy of getting things planted this weekend, like so many other gardeners, was that my beds are still completely shaded by the fence.
|A few more weeks and the front edge of the beds will finally see some sun.|
|View of the cherry from the road. Not much of a view yet.|

The next thing on my list of garden to-do items is planting the camellia. If I don't collapse in agony after that, it's back to work on the blackberries. I might just be able to get ahead of them before they really start growing.
|Tools are all ready for the camellia.|
|Camellia all ready to be planted. Only one not ready is me!|
