It was a beautiful day Saturday, sunny and 6ºC. Almost all the piles of snow are gone (we had another small-ish dump of the stuff earlier in the week). I went for an invigorating walk around the neighbourhood, noticing that many spring plants are starting to come up.
I went past my own little yard, and realized that some of my plants needed trimming after being bruised and battered by all the snow. Particularly the little dracaena that lives in a blue pot on my back patio. I usually put a few red flowering bedding plants around it, and I quite like the way it looks, with the contrasting blue, red, and dark green. I’m not an artist, but I do know when a colour combination is esthetically pleasing to my eye.
And apparently I’m not much of a gardener, either.
Too much trimming, do you think?
