One corner of the universe squared away

I finally - finally - finished weeding the island bed today and planted the astilbe in the shade between the two areas of hostas I planted earlier. A fitting activity for Earth Day, I thought. Since I pulled up every single weed by hand and carted them off to the chickens, it should be relatively easy to keep it weeded now. On to other shaggy-looking planting beds!

This morning when I turned the ewes and lambs out, two-year-old Bramble sproinged and raced around the pasture with the little lambies. I grabbed my camera and shot some video footage, but apparently deleted it instead of saving it on my computer. You'll have to take my word for it; it was a hoot!

That's it for today from . . .

Your island bed looks great! I love it when a bed is freshly weeded.

It's always funny to watch the younger ewes capering about like lambs! It seemed that the ones in my flock I called the "Valley Girls" were more likely to indulge in that behavior.

Too bad you deleted it - it would have been a hoot!

Is like housecleaning
never truly over
But at least
weeding is outside

The island bed looks great! True, weeding is ongoing, but there is something enormously satisfying about a bed with no weeds!
