Spring Cleanup in the Urban Jungle

Here is a quick video of my wife showing how to gently rake off the windfall from last autumn. We tend to leave it on the ground over winter for 2 main reasons : we have more energy in the spring when we make any excuse to spend time outside in the sunshine and fresh air, than in the fall when one tends to feel lethargic and pining for the summer past; and it also adds just a little bit more protection against the ice and snow. Though she also chooses plants that can overwinter without much fuss because it is just far easier to care for a garden like this.

When our garden grows up in the coming weeks you'll be able to see how well refashionista has planned our back yard, and how much it feels like an urban jungle.


So much to say, such a short attention span:

  • Heading out to Ukiuk tomorrow night with Auntie H and the kids, maybe DH also. I saw it before the Jim Cuddy show and it was pretty fantastic. I want to show the kids so that I can explain that it was actually someone's *job* to work on something that awesome and inspiring.
