Today I was out in the garden for I think four hours, making a concerted effort to clear out all the prickers along the right side of the yard. The prickers etc. had encroached a full ten feet into the yard from the boundary stone wall over the years. So I cut it all back. I left a forsythia bush which I now want to edge around. The plan is to plant bugleweed along the stone wall, to help keep weeds from growing there. It's too shady for grass it seems.
