Bring on Spring!

Around our place, we are ready for Spring! There has been such nice weather that we couldn't help but be outside working on projects.

Here are some pictures of what we have been up to:

The first flower to break ground.

Daffodils by the front porch steps.

Hanged up a humming bird feeder out back, over the deck.

Raked up pine needles and thatch from the yard.

Strawberry plants - Before:

Strawberry plants - After cleaning them out.

With purchase at Zamzows we could use their spreader for free.
Here we are spreading fertilizer on the front and back lawns.

Hopefully this will help make a greener lawn and choke out the weeds.

Two old compost bins - Before:

We found a basketball, broken pitchfork, and broken toys.
The dirt was old & moldy.
Empty compost bin - After:

Cleared out most of this pile and took to dump:

Worked on pruning the Lilac Tree. Since we missed the time to cut it back last year, after the flowers had bloomed, we then were able to cut it back only by a third.

We are looking forward to doing a proper pruning this next time.
