Irene's desk is my research blog for my romance novel.

As I mentioned in my Sunday Salon, I spent the day in the garden, Sunday that is. It was perfect weather, not too hot, not too cold. Heck I even browned my shoulders. But, once you get out there, I don't get out too early in spring since I have so many perennials, they don't start looking messy until the end of June, but with all this rain, WOW they are a jungle. Boy that was a run on sentence. Well here's the view when you walk down the side walk
I didn't take a before picture, but in between all those stones grew "creeping Jenny" and while I like the creeping part in the spring, it blooms all yellow, it gets out of control very quickly, so each stone was picked up and washed in a bucket and creeping Jenny pulled out and then stone replaced. All this work and then I broke a wing. Now she'll be vintage, she actually is 35 years old. Now for the other 2/3 of the yard.
