Nothing in the gardens had been pruned, weeded or deadheaded for so long, they were starting to look like a jungle. Some plants were beyond the point of no return. Some had to be whacked way back so that they'll fill in and bloom again, but I think I have things (mostly) under control now.
All of these pics are of the same garden, because the other one had to be cut back so drastically.
Tonight, I tackle the back yard.
