Do you like weeding ?

Well actually on a day like today, I like weeding.  A nice warm south wind blowing on a partly sunny day.
When there is little blooming in the garden other than a few daffodils and a few marsh marigolds. So peaceful.  Only the sounds of the wind blowing through the trees, the birds singing and crickets chirping.

 The soil slightly damp and cool to your hands.
How could you not enjoy weeding when you look back and see the results if your labor.
Since I do not wish to be doing this again when it becomes hot outside, and knowing that pulling those weeds
has disturbed many weed seeds that are just waiting to sprout, I spread some Trefland in the bed. Knowing there is a rain moving in tonight or tomorrow morning, I want have to water it in. Now I can stand back and anticipate June bloom.
This makes five of the seven beds I have cleaned out that are in the picture of my heading.
