March in the Garden
Last week I finally decided it was time to cut all the dried sedum stalks in the front flower beds. Every year I say that I am going to leave them as long as possible for the birds but I have never seen a bird eating the seeds. Maybe they do when I'm not watching.
But as I was saying, I was kneeling down cutting the stalks and pushing them into the garbage bin when I realized it was full. When I stood up and looked at all my hard work sticking out of the bin I was amazed how incredibly beautiful it was. I love the color of the white stalks and the muted burnt orange together. I guess this supports the old saying that "one girl's trash can also be her treasure."
