The center bed with our well ventilation pipe and a few Black-eyed Susans that I was able to salvage.
The last three late afternoons and early evenings before sunset have been spent giving some much overdue TLC to three garden beds in front of Totliegh-in-the-Wold. Backbreaking is something of an understatment, but the end results are worth it. A two inch bed of mulch will follow tomorrow plus a few deer-resistant perennials before moving onto other beds that need some weeding and revamping. Whew!
The bed beneath the small tree with a rather nicely rendered tree-ring if I do say so myself. Roots close to the surface prevented a nice, crisp edge, so I improvised with some unused bricks to set the bed off from the surrounding lawn.
And the bed beneath a big, old Oak. Again, roots close to the surface of the ground made edging difficult, but I did what I could. Mulch for all three areas tomorrow (Sunday). The bed around the mailbox will get a similar treatment in a day or two. Grass to be replaced with Day Lilies.
