Transplanting and Weeding in my garden

I mentioned in a recent blog about how rainy and dreary it's been. It just seems to go on and on and on. It's not the best weather for gardening, but my crew at the farm is doing their very best to keep things in order. There's always so much to be planted in the spring and Shaun has been working tirelessly. Between raindrops, he also moved some large ligularia plants. Ligularia is a bold perennial that sends up spires of yellow or orange flowers during summer. I wasn't happy where they had been planted because they were taking up too much space and didn't look good with the other plantings. And that's a great thing about gardening - if you're not happy with something, change it!

Here is one ligularia plant that Shaun has dug up to transplant.
