I’ll admit, gardening in Maine in late March isn’t the most exciting thing I’ve ever done. But as the weather continues to teeter totter between freezing temps and the spring thaw, it’s getting us out of the house and into the yard, so that’s a good thing.
Clearing garden beds of brush and trimming tree limbs are what we’ve been up to the past few days, and already we’re starting to see a big difference.
The good thing about this property is that it’s not too overwhelming. Really all we need to do to get it into tip top shape is get out there and prune the trees, install a vegetable plot and add a fenced in area for Lucy and then maintain, maintain, maintain.
It’s a pretty low key piece of land, very natural looking, and I think that’s what I like best about it. If we never planted another tree or put in any new flower beds, the place would still look great twenty years from now.
Slowing down. That’s what I’m all about these days. Do it once, do it right, and then sit back and enjoy the fruits of our labor. It sounds like a pretty solid plan if you ask me.
And hey! Check it out. Buoy #2 washed ashore yesterday. How about that? A few more and I’ll have enough to display on the side of the barn.
Beauty, it’s in the small things.
Here’s to a wonderful Thursday.
P.S. Have you been able to work in the garden lately? If so, what have you been up to? Planning, pruning, planting? Curious minds want to know.
