I worked cleaning up the yard all weekend
I have Been liking my garden more after the freeze burn down than I have during the growing season the last few years.
I don't see my rocks and elevation changes with all the plants blocking the view.
I am going to thin things down some before spring green up

There's a phrase used here in the UK - "can't see the wood for the trees" :) Sounds like a good idea to thin out the plants, it will be interesting to see before and after photos if you get a chance.

I'm just the opposite, I love wild gardens with lots and lots of different, lush plants. There is never enough trees and flowers for me. I want them to grow everywhere!:D

I get what you are saying! Sometimes thining here and there is the way to go. I personally don't like gardens that seem to be out of control, lol.
