Working the Land
I mowed the lawn and cleaned up the yard a little more after work today. Some of the grass seed I planted a couple of weeks back took hold and is starting to come up. I have several areas that could use some more attention and more seed. Maybe I will work on that this weekend.
The battery yard/leaf blower I got for Christmas came in handy today after I finished mowing and edging the tree lawn. My old one required pulling out the extension cords, stringing them from the back of the house and then coiling them up when I was finished. This one made the job much easier.
I need to start start thinking about the flowers and shrubs that I was to put in once the tulips and daffodils finish blooming. I will probably enlist the help of my dad and his rototiller to help with that job. Prepping the beds should go pretty quick given the sandy soil I have hear in the neighborhood.
Buds are just starting to form on the trees too. Give it another week or two and this neighborhood will look completely different.
