[gardeners] Sunday in the garden

Chiming in from cooler climes.

Here in the southern Willamette Valley, we had a Sunday that was perfect
for gardening--warmish (50s) a bit overcast, with the sun peeking through
from time to time.  I went out to mow the lawn.  Four hours later I had:
mowed the lawn, weeded all the beds, cut back many of the perennials I had
left up for the winter, built a new rose and perennial bed in my back yard,
moved a bunch (20 maybe?) of plants from a bed that I will be redoing this
year to a set of beds along the back fence.

Now that the new bed is built, I can turn to ordering the roses--I now know
how much space I actually have to work with.

And I'm only a little bit sore this morning!
