Lovely Daylight Saving time Sunday
And, as we all know, that sitting down thing still hasn't taken! So I did a few clean-uppy things:
Pulled up landscape fabric strips from around the fence and stump beds. That experiment failed miserably and only ended up looking ratty.
Pulled out all the dead kale and parsley plants and recovered all the torn netting (!!deer!!).
Cut off all the dead asparagus ferns from last year as well as the big mess made by the flattened (!!deer!!) tall boneset clump.
Cut back the Nishiki willow and H. F. Young (blue) clematis. I see the new clematis (Henryi - white) that I overwintered in the large pot (previously occupied by the H. F. Young) has a few buds so hopefully there's good roots down in the pot.
We're supposed to get up to an inch of rain tomorrow and then snow and cold after Tuesday, so to take advantage of the precip, I crawled around and spread HollyTone around all the Canadian hemlocks (14) and the (only 4 now !!deer!!) rhodys.
Also decided it was a good time to overseed the lawn between the gum tree and arbor bed. The drought really did a job on that area last year.
I know I dinked around some more - just to be outside on such a gorgeous day. Besides, I needed to distract myself. I'm still plagued with a lot of numbness, headaches and light-headedness. Tomorrow I have an appointment with a neurological group and will press for a MRI first and foremost. With these symptoms, I'm fearful of the results. :-( Please keep your fingers crossed for me.
