Yay! It’s finally spring and boy am I thankful for that! The weather has been glorious, so I have been working outside in the yard. Last week I spent time “trenching” the flower beds in an attempt to get a crisper line between the grass and the garden. It is always difficult digging up grass by hand (I learned that the hard way 2 years ago when I built my patio). What a wonderful difference the technique has made. Today I did my annual mulching. It’s a fairly inexpensive way to refresh the yard and slow down the growth of weeds.
I recently acquired my late grandparent’s bench, so, at the suggestion of a friend, I had a small plaque made to commemorate them. It’s a small gesture, but I’m glad that I did it.
