Let It Snow
I have several viburnums in my garden but these two have 'snow' in their names: Snowball Viburnum (viburnum opulus roseum)
I've made lots of progress in my garden the past couple of weeks but there are still two major flower beds to clean up. This is the most intensive time of year for me gardening-wise. After that, it's a matter of not letting the weeds take over. I hope to get back to painting soon.
Yesterday, we tested our irrigation system. Meeko only chewed six sprinklers this past winter, compared to twenty-five the year before! He concentrated on an area that I can't see from the house. Very sneaky of him. I repaired them yesterday, wrapped them with chicken wire and sprayed them with citronella (as he does not like that smell) and hope he will stay away from them for a little while (like maybe all summer!). I guess I should thank him though for allowing me to add sprinkler repairs to my handywoman repertoire.
