The Dead Stuff Must Go

A Kansas Country Garden

Suddenly it seems that spring has arrived. We are never 100% sure that it is really here to stay, but as days go by with delightfully warm temperatures, it certainly seems like a possibility.

After months of winter banishment from the garden, the heart and the hands yearn to return. First order of business is cleaning up the flower beds. Last year's garden was one of the best; generous rains brought a truly outstanding display that was all the more treasured because it followed several years of drought and intense heat.
