Six Cercis out, two Lagerstoemias (Crepe Myrtles) in. A cousin of Jesus got the stumps out on Saturday. He used a pick, not a shovel. Duh. Now I know.
Buckets and buckets and bags of roots I grubbed out after the stumps were gone.
Once the new trees grow a bit...something like this?
One tough job finally done. The koi pond UV unit awaits, gulp.
Taking a moment to recall the fun part of gardening, Aloe x noblis has finally bloomed after years and years. It's in a horrible hot spot that gets no irrigation, so no wonder it hasn't bloomed before now. Yet another good effect of this spring's late rains.
I am exhausted. The puppies are fine. Boris chews on an antler, Natasha chews on Boris.
