Snow is gone

Finally the snow melted !! And then I saw what was underneath.Insurmountable comes to mind.. Needs an overhaul, but I guess we have " artistic differences".  I want to correct  bush forms, weed and fluff perfectly, not add anything until what is here is under control.  She, on the other hand covers all flaws with flowers.  It does seem to work, as in the end it is lovely.I ache and my hands look like monkey claws.  And we have only just begun.See More
