Thinking of Spring

Not much time for garden cleanup this week. As I cleanup I dream of spring.
I managed to get some compost on the garden from my little compost bin – 3 wheelbarrows of wonderful black organic matter to be exact.
Leaf raking is in full swing. A pile of leaves, chopped and collected with the mower will help produce next year’s compost.

A few more plants need to be cleaned up.
The hostas are a mushy mess.

Some lilies need to be cut back.
The garden phlox is waiting to be lopped off.
There is more to do before the snow arrives but I’ve got a good start for spring.
