Honestly, we garden fairies are thinking that this blog would fall to pieces without us stepping in to carry the load while Carol is off doing who knows what here at May Dreams Gardens.
Who knows what? Let us tell you, there is an awful lot of activity going on around here.
We garden fairies are a bit concerned by it all, we've gotta say, because we like things to be fairly calm, serene, and well, a tad bit, no make that a whole lot lazy. After all, we are garden fairies.
Yesterday, Carol was out in the veggie garden talking to a guy who was taking measurements and all. Then he left and Bam! Through the gate she came with a wheelbarrow, digging fork, perennial spade and a regular spade. As usual, her Felco pruners were in a holster clipped to her jeans.
We garden fairies were a bit perturbed, after all it was getting on to mid-morning and we were all just dozing off! Anyway, Carol doesn't think one bit about our safety and security, she just starts digging like a fiend. Like a mad woman! She was digging up all those perennials that she moved back here to the vegetable garden last spring.
Then she moved them back to some of the new perennial borders. Honestly! We garden fairies never saw such a commotion and ruckus.
We gathered ourselves together and decided that the veggie garden is no longer safe, so we've packed up our petals and leaves, acorns and walnut shells, and other bits and pieces that we've gathered from the garden over the years and moved ourselves last night to the bed where the Helleborus are blooming.
Aren't they pretty?
Anyway, we garden fairies will keep a watch out and let everyone know what happens next, that is if it doesn't interfere with our sleeping and being lazy and all. Honestly, we garden fairies are carrying this blog!

(Note from Carol: Tomorrow a landscape crew is coming to remove the rotted boards holding up the raised beds in the vegetable garden, pull out the landscape fabric under the paths, clean out the compost bins, and then rake the whole garden smooth. When they leave, I'll have a clean slate for the vegetable garden. I plan to rearrange the beds and then finally plant my peas and all. I'm excited!)
