Woke up, had a cup, then the cats told us it was time to go to work:
We stopped to smell the Clematis first. It's really bloomin' this year!
That deserves a close-up:
Now for the actual work. I got out my manly Stihl 025 chainsaw and
cleared the brush and overgrowth out the west fence line, while Pam
used the sissy electric clippers to trim the south hedges:
Pam, however, ran into a bit more excitement than I did:
He slithered right across her foot.. I had taken a load of brush down to the burn pile, a good 1/8th mile away, but had no trouble hearing her scream... I guarantee he regretted messin' with Pam, though:
Next on to the real work:
They say it's good luck to plant on Good Friday. We'll see. We down-sized a bit this year. Hey, 'tis just us two! Got the staples, of course:
This guy has some blooms already:
Two things money can't buy: Love, and home-growed tomaters.
Ah well, enough work for one day!
