Cleaning up the yard
Boy did it feel good to get out and do a little work in the yard tonight. The temperature was great, and I wanted to something done before the rain tomorrow and the upcoming temperature drop this week. I didn’t get much done, but things look a little better out there. I was able to clean up the beds in front of the house, down the side, and the one at the back of the driveway. I raked up about a bag of leaves, and I picked up lots of sticks and twigs throughout the yard. I think most of my flowers made it through the winter, but I may have lost my black-eyed susans, one or two of my mums, and one of my azaleas. The other azaleas have lots of leaves, but no flowers yet. The hostas, irises, and day lillies are growing like crazy, and the tulips are going to bloom any day now. I will do more work on the reseeding the grass and reconfiguring the big bed in the side yard once I get the big tree taken down in the back. Hopefully the tree company calls this week to schedule a date.
