A nice day today --still a bit chilly, with a high only of 52, but nice and sunny. The spring bulbs have been pushing up, even with the chilly temps. The hyacinth are showing flower buds, and the glory-of-the-snow has blossoms that are open (the pink one). I did a bit more mulching today, and I tried to get the viburnum out of the birch bed --no luck there. I did cut several major roots all the way around, but it's got a strong tap root, and it's not budging. It's so hard to get in there and do anything, because of all the other plants. I'm going to see if the damage I did might be enough to kill it.
