Kate at Gardening Without Skills had the idea to host Garden Bloggers' Death Day on the last of day of every month. I think it's a terrific idea, a change of pace from looking at photos of incredibly beautiful flowers and healthy luscious vegetables. Admit it, you have something ugly-looking in your garden right now that you could be sharing with us.
See what happened to my Pulmonaria 'Raspberry Splash' (lungwort)? It may not be completely dead because it looks like there's still a bit of a green heartbeat going on in the center of the plant and I suspect the roots are still good. I'll prune it back and hope for the best.
The lungwort looked like this in May, 2009. Keeping my fingers crossed for 2010.
If you'd like to join in, go to Gardening Without Skills and leave a comment about what's dead or almost dead in your garden and we'll come visit. Share a story and a photo, it'll make us all feel better about our own gardening skills.
I wonder how Kate came up with a name like Gardening Without Skills for her blog because she clearly has gardening skills, chicken raising skills, children raising skills, writing skills and a sense of humor.
