Cleanup is a neverending process

Blue Grass, Longwood Gardens, PAImage by Grufnik via FlickrLife has kept me from the garden a lot lately, but this morning's cool temperatures drew me outside to engage in a little garden cleanup. I hate when the front garden starts to look ratty, as that is the face you present to the world. I had grass sprouting in beds, lantana over-running everything and some windblown litter from the street, so that area immediately drew my attention.

My back is not allowing my long stints in the garden, but within the course of an hour, with help from my wife, I cleaned out the area, and removed some wayward nut grass from along the driveway. We ended up filling our green garden bed with the weeds and associated leaves that had collected there, so we got a small sense of accomplishment there. There is still so much to do, but I try to do a little bit at a time so I don't end up regretting it the next day.

I hope the weather stays cool so I will continue to be inclined to work in the garden. There is so much that needs to be done. I have some grand ideas for rejuvenating some more of the existing beds, but they require cool days so we don't feel like we are going to melt.
