got quite a bit of work done in the yard
since it was a mild and not so windy day.
First of all some of the Redbuds in the
yard got a bit of a trim. You can't get the riding mower under the lower branches, so they had to go. I love the lavender pink color of the Redbuds. They're beginning to leaf out now and soon the pretty blooms will be gone until next spring.
One of the trees has a cute little bird nest
in it so I watched to make sure Hubby didn't
cut the wrong branch since the nest wasn't very high. The Robin wasn't too happy about her territory being invaded and flew away. She was back later in the nest.
The lilacs are blooming and the scent in the yard was just heavenly. The color of lilacs is pretty, too. I remember when I was very young that my Easter outfit was all in lilac or I suppose we called it lavender. Even my shoes were lavender as well as my bracelet. I don't think I've worn much lavender since!
ground cover weed is trying to take over our yard. I'm
not sure what it's called, but I call it a Pain! Our yard is entirely
too big to redo and put in that lovely grass sod. We have 3 lots
so you can imagine that it would be quite an undertaking not
to mention quite expensive. The moles have also been
having way too much fun making runs and hills, too.
I don't like the noise of lawn mowers or chain saws on Sundays. I really wish they would ban such noises on one day of the week, but I know that will never happen. I suppose that for a few people that could be the only day they might have to get such work done. We don't normally work this hard or noisily on Sundays ourselves, but it was such a nice and non-windy and dry day that we felt we should get these things done. How was your weekend?
Until next time...
