So, today, I did the following:
1. Thinned out the monkey grass on both sides of the walkway but focused mostly on the left hand side
2. Removed the no longer flowering lilies, saving the bulbs and bulb offspring(?). I can only imagine that this is what happened because 6 lilies were planted, and I now have much more than 6 bulbs (10 I think). My mom told me how to store them over the winter by first letting the leaves die out and then wrapping the bulbs in a brown bag.
3. Weeded (which was needed due to the high amount of rain we have been getting)
4. Mulched areas of exposed dirt or high levels of mini-weeds
I also have added some mums in the front in honor of autumn. I hope to put out some pumpkins soon too. I love fall!
Anyway, below shows the results of this afternoon's gardening effort.
I would still like to thin out the right side a little more, but maybe in the spring? It's hard to get up the grass without also hitting tree roots. That's all for now!
