front flower bed

garden 5.18.08 -afternoon
What is disappointing is the energy I am extending into the garden is so pedestrian. I am so sick of pulling up sod, pulling weeds and all the other stuff that takes forever and is definitely not what I am in this for.

I wonder if I will be sick of snapdragons next year.

Things I should have done if I had had the energy this year:
*Started dahlias in pots six weeks ahead of so I actually plant them
*Dig out as much turf as possible when it is cool out because it is impossible in the heat.
*Clean out all the beds and pots so when it’s time to plant stuff it is not an overwhelming chore.
*Get rid of all the sod I have piled all over the place.
