While it was cloudy, damp, and chilly this morning, once the sun came out it did warm up into the 60's. Emma helped me to clean up a daylilly bed that had suffered from our two-year stint with a beagle named Rosie. She chose to lie in the center of the bed, to soak in the sun. The daylilies thinned out and last year the dandelions took over. While I love dandelions in the lawn, I don't care for them in the flower beds.
The heather that my mom sent me a few years ago as a birthday present is looking pretty in pink, edged with some glory-of-the-snow. I wanted to get a picture to show her, and in the process of kneeling down and holding the camera steady, I ended up with embedded mulch in both calves. But the pictures turned out nicely.
