Sandbox Firsts for Mosaic Monday
We have had the most perfect weekend weather wise. Today I decided to get after the scourge of my front garden…the Vinca Minor or Periwinkle. It has taken over the front bed and it has sunk it’s little tentacles into all the plants until nothing else can grow. So, I went out with my favourite tool the copra head and dug as much out as I could until my back gave out. I did manage to fill one of the large paper garden waste bags with it and some honeysuckle branches that was also taking over. There is a lot more to do but I if the weather holds it will give me endless hours of play in the Sandbox. I am so glad to be finally able to get outside again.
My mosaic reflects more firsts. The Hellebore Niger is beginning to bloom and so is the little Primula. The fish have appeared from the bottom of the pond and out came one frog to sun himself on the rocks.
I will be joining Mary for Mosaic Monday. I hope you have a great week. Valerie
