Too Much Rain To Garden

Terry is really focused on his vegetable garden, and if I want to maintain any of the ornamental plants, it is up to me. There are some perennials that did very poorly last year because they were shaded by the daisies. I've wanted to move them for weeks now, but have never gotten around to it. I want to wait until evening when its cool outside, but it seems that every appropriate night I either have something else going on, or it's raining, or muddy because it rained earlier in the day.

But I suspect it's getting to a critical point-- the plant is once again being smothered by the daisies, and I don't think it can take another year of that. I think I already lost one of that kind of plant to the daisies last year. I don't even remember what's under there, it's been so long since I've seen it. I think Russian sage.
