|ready for native plants with emphasis on bird friendly|
|bee friendly slated for here|
Plenty of stones as you can see but nothing to the size my husband removed.

This baby was about four inches below the surface in the spot we needed for a blackcurrant bush.
It was given to us by a neighbour as long as we dug it out of her garden. I wasn't expecting it to be so big. We broke her fork getting it out! We needed a wide hole as the roots like to be spread out sideways and that was when we ran into the baby boulder.
Some heavy duty raking is on the agenda for today. The uncared for trees need some top dressing. I'm following advice from an old timer. Low nitrogen, higher potassium and some lime. Top dressing goes on top except when there is moss which needs to be pulled off. Of course we have moss as far as the eye can see.
The good news is the daffodils we planted in the orchard last Fall have come up.
