Garden adventures, thoughts and ideas…

Almost there!

Leave a comment

The robins have landed….and the skunks are back out. Two sure signs that spring is finally here. Of course, it’s still a tad white out there, but with the climbing temperatures Mother Nature has been favoring us with that should be nothing but a memory by the weekend.

It’s time to get out and get the yard cleaned up – pick up all the branches and do a little de-thatching of the lawn. Time to also get the tools sharpened and cut the grasses down and prune out dead wood from the shrubs.

Last year we were doing all this mid-March – a tad later this year, but will be nice to get out there and start making the yard look like spring is truly here.
