This time of year there is always something to do in the yard. After the initial, early spring clean-up after the snow has melted and mother nature gives us warmer days to work, there is much more work to be done.
As plants come up and my oaks, which don’t lose most of their leaves until Spring when the buds push them off, there is a checklist of things to be done. The leaves need to be removed from the gardening and planting beds; areas where new plants will go in the ground need to be prepared and the perennials need to be purchased; transplanting from one area to the next takes care and time; the vegetable and cutting flower beds need to be prepped and planted.
Yesterday, before the late afternoon and evening rains, I was transplanting some mounding phlox and planting black-eyed susan’s and lavender. I was working next to a lily on my left and peripherally felt that something besides the plant was there. Sure enough, cammoed and tucked within the leaves was a little, squat green frog — never moved an inch.
I let her/him be and we both went on with our day.
