My job was to cut back all our ornamental grasses, which I love the rest of the year when I don't have to do anything to them, but because I have a lot of them they are not my friends when I have to cut them all down. I also cleaned all the leaves out of the flower beds, and cut back anything else that needed it.
The flower beds are one more thing that I have a hard time finishing each year. I start out really strong in April and May, but in July when it is 90+ degrees and more humid than a sauna, I just give up. When it comes to fall and cleaning up the beds, I am so over it that it doesn't happen. I am going to try and do better this year. I think if I break it down bed by bed and day by day, I won't get so overwhelmed with it all. Plus I have this blog to keep me accountable. So stay tuned for pictures over the course of the WHOLE Spring, Summer and Fall seasons!
