This is a memorial garden my girls and I made in honour of my MIL, many years ago.
It desperately needed weeding... Since this is the first time I was able to get to it this year.
I have inherited my moms brown thumb and I don't know to much about plants. To prove this I almost pulled out some plants from last year.
Luckily I was smart enough to leave the plant sticks in the ground from last year to remind me :)
Later on I decided to tackle this flower bed as well. Every year they all start out like this....so full of weeds, grass and pine needles.
Again, luckily, I left the plant markers in with the plants.
I think I may have come up with a great idea to identify my plants.
I took a water bottle, cut it in strips and then wrap it around the plant and stick the edges in the dirt..
I know this plant doesn't look to healthy.
Told you... Grime Reaper of plants.
But I checked over at my FILs and he has a mama robin over there.
