Here's where my husband becomes my hero! As we were raking the abundant leaves from our yard yesterday, he commented about how frustrating it is to rake around these things. I told him I've been wanting to take those out for years... so that's just what he did!
Now I HAVE to get something else planted here! I'll have to re-read everyone's advice about what to plant in this zone 3, dry, shady spot! Suggestions?
