I haven't been very excited by the garden since we got back from the west coast. Most of the pots were dead and the flowerbeds weren't spectacular. DH has been complaining about my globe thistles for ages and I finally agreed with him and dug most of them up. I planted this little shrub (name escapes me) instead. Usually I love getting the garden ready for winter but aside from banding the trees, mulching the newly planted apple and cherry trees and clematis, I can't really be bothered. And I'm super busy writing and we've been doing stuff inside the house for a change. Still, I kind of miss getting my hands dirty and will need to do a big weeding session before long.
Anyone have any good plant recs for Zone 3?
