Yard Clean up

I am very excited that the rain we were supposed to get the day before yesterday missed us, but that means it is time to get to work and clean up the yard. It has been a very long winter and I am very anxious for the warmer weather I know will be here soon. I want to be able to enjoy the outdoors and therefore need to clean up the yard.

I have perennial pruning to do as well as, tree and shrub pruning, leaf pickup, stick pickup and lawn fertilizing to do. I need to mulch the perennial garden and till the vegetable garden for the lettuce and spinach planting. I know it is still too early to mow the grass but I am chomping at the bit to see those gorgeous lines on the lawn again. I feel a sense of serenity, seeing the mower lines in the grass. Kind of like seeing the vacuum lines on the carpet in the house.

Ultimately, I want to see my beautiful spring and summer flowers in all their glory. I may have to take a trip to the Morton Arboretum this week to be inspired and drink in the beautiful view and smells of spring. Do you hear a field trip coming? I do! Work first though...
