compost, rain, violets...
We chiseled a bit of a pathway through the compost this weekend and somehow it doesn't look quite so overwhelming, though I haven't checked it since the downpour today--maybe it's slumped over again under its own enormous sodden weight. Generally though, the news from the garden is good. Everything is greening up rapidly and the rain today can only help.
I never realized how tough and weedy violets are. Every year I have to dig up clumps of them and they're wily at hiding among strawberries and other perennials. But this one cluster was so gorgeous I had to leave it.
