Clean-up time . . . no foolin'!

Over the past week, we've been cutting back the grasses, cleaning out the flowerbeds, and burning off the stubble from last year's prairie grasses. It's a very efficient way to clean up the garden (provided we don't burn down the fence or the house! We've learned to keep a garden hose close by and turned on.) It's been rewarding to clear out all the yard debris and see some of the plants springing to life. The yarrow and columbine have a good start on the spring and the sedums are already beautiful. They never really died out over the winter, but now that we've raked and thinned them out a bit, they're really taking off, and provide a nice spot of color on rock garden hill.
