Gardening Novice

A couple of years ago, my neighbors planted some lavender bushes; last year, they moved away. After hearing from our super that the new owner doesn’t plan to do anything with the garden, I spent some time this morning cutting away the dead branches. Two of the bushes were complete goners. I hope these come back a little.

I do not have a green thumb, but I do like the idea of gardening and the result of a pretty (and/or productive) garden. Maybe next week I’ll attack the upper level and clean it up. Then I can go to the nursery and figure out what to plant. It’s a little late in the season, but there must be something that’s okay for late June planting in the Northeast. I’ll ask.

In the meantime, at least it looks a little nicer. Too bad I didn’t think to take a before pic. The most important lesson I learned today though is simple. Gardening doesn’t have to consume the whole day. Even 25 minutes produces some result. Like most things, a little at a time gets the job done.

P.S. Anyone know what those green leafy plants in the front are?
