Last year, between two of the stones that constitute the garden path, there was an interesting collection of plants: brambles, silver birch and dandelion. Needless to say, I didn’t plant any of them and didn’t want them there.
At the same time, I had put off doing anything about them – until I already had the spade out today to remove bluebells from a spot where the rose bush is going to move to.
Instead, the leaves are now in the compost bin to add nutrients the accompanying roots had brought up from the subsoil. And I feel I’m shaping the garden, even while waiting for more annuals to go out and crops to be ready to come in.
