Hard Things

Life is full of things which are hard or tedious or otherwise unpleasant that need doing anyhow. They help make the world go 'round, they improve skills, and they boost your sense of self-respect. But doing them still kinda sucks. It's all the more difficult to do those things when nobody appreciates it. Happily, blogging allows us to share our accomplishments and pat each other on the back.

What are some of the hard things you've done recently? What are some hard things you haven't gotten to yet, but need to do?

Wednesday Yardening

Today is hot and muggy.  We got some rain, not a lot, but enough to wet the ground.  \o/

Round One, Doug helped me put in the tower for the wild grapevine in the white garden.  Then I pulled grass from around the garden and removed a lot of dead yucca leaves.  The yucca is now sending up a lot of new green shoots.  :D  I planted three different types of artemesia.  I also discovered that the silver mound from last year actually came back, which is rare.  <3 

EDIT 5/30/18: Round Two, I planted two prairie red plums and one sassafras in the streetside yard.

EDIT 5/30/18: Round Three, I covered, mulched, and watered the new seedlings in the streetside yard.  I also potted up a pineapple mint and apple mint.  As it is now dark, I am done for the night.

The linden tree in the streetside yard has buds on it.  I think my persimmon tree is blooming. :D
