It is hard to believe that tomorrow will be June already. The day dawned with a misty drizzle which cleared for short periods.
After the usual morning chores I put some washing on and went outside to do some clearing. I cut back a hydrangea and then cleared some ladder fern. The ladder fern was growing at the top of the stone wall when we bought the property and I am finally getting around to cutting it right back. O.K. I know it will regrow but it will, hopefully take a few years to reach its current proportions.
I remove a small amount each week, mainly because of disposal.
I have also been looking at the Yukka near the bathroom window. On looking back I see it is a year since I transplanted the smaller shoots to make a hedge at the bottom of the garden. Well, the original plant is starting to tower over the house and I was thinking of removing it but wondering why it hadn't flowered. Today I looked more closely and can just see a bud emerging so, once it has flowered the largest trunk can be removed. There are lots of new shoots around the base.
