Yard Goods - Saturday 5/2/2009
Why do I always forget to take a before photo? This is the middle photo.
Trust me, I spent about half of the 3 1/2 hours I spent on the yard was right here. I took out most of the rocks in order to get the neighbors' leaves out from between them. And then, yes, I put them back.
Tomorrow I want to replace the African daisies with fresh ones.
I enjoy digging, planting, even weeding. I am less enthusiastic about cleaning up afterward.
The whole thing of sweeping a sidewalk is kind of mystifying. I mean, isn't the whole point of the outdoors to have a place to keep your dirt?
I picked up 249 apricots from the back yard. The other day I picked up 118. There are maybe 3 dozen left on the branches.
Big winds in spring: boo! hiss!
