God knows I want so much to be able to keep a pretty, nice, yard. I want flowers, I want mulch, I want everything to be inviting and beautiful and what do I have? One and a half acres of “do the best I can” yard!
Yesterday was sunshiney and warm and the yard was in desperate need of mowing and trimming. Spring is here after all. I spent from 9 AM to 4 PM working on it all. I must say I was quite impressed with myself. Arimi was very good for me too. She’s old enough that I can trust her to stay where I tell her while I mow. She enjoyed chasing bugs and digging in the dirt with a stick.
This morning it rained which was a welcome change around here. We’ve had a very dry March. I was especially glad that I got the yard done yesterday or else it would be another week before I would be able to get it done. I took Arimi to the mailbox with me to mail a bill and grabbed 6 of the Iris plants that are planted under the mailbox to transplant in my two big blue buckets that we had tomatoes in last year. I am really hoping they live and thrive.
I do wish I could hire someone else to do the yard work though.
