After a major pick up clean up behind the yews that are coming out I had my Dearly Beloved help me move the potting bench to its new location. I decided to situate it at the end of the barn. Here it won't be in the way. I keep the potting soil and other pots in this barn anyway so the only inconvience I can forsee is that the hose is up by the house. I will just have to keep a watering can out to have my water available. If it is like last summer I had the hose out all the time anyway. If I am planting big pots I usually place the pots where they will be sitting before watering anyway. This way I find they aren't so difficult to move around. Now don't mind all the junk around it. It is much better than it was. I got 3 bags of trash out of the original corner. Part of an old grill, lots of broken pots I had kept for shards at the bottom of pots. Give me a break. How many do you really need? What was I thinking?? I can't even blame DB or Luna for this mess. Where are my Grandchildren when I need them??
All of this will hardly be noticable when the viburnum leafs out later this spring. I will have to move a couple of Hellebores out of traffic but other than that I think I will be satisfied with this arrangement.
After I pulled a 5-gallong bucket of hen bit from around the apple tree I made myself another mug of tea and sat out on the bench we set out today. Aaaaahhh I felt like the Cheshire Cat all fat and sassy sitting in the sun admiring my work. It was a little chillier today. I am not complaining though. It was nice enough to be out. Everything looks pretty stark yet. It won't be long now. I can see sunlight at the end of the tunnel.
