Gardening season begins

With such a warm bright day, it was definitely time to get the lawnmower out and start to tidy up the lawn, and the quondam vegetable beds covered with weeds. Also time to start clear out the worst of last year's dead vegetation, belatedly prune the buddleia, and add some edging as a sill to the new paved path in the front to prevent a repeat of yesterday's incident where Karen put a wheel over the edge while trying to turn around.

Also, the spring bulbs are suddenly appearing -- as are splashing signs of frogs awakening from sleep.
