It's that time of year, spring clean up
In the fall, I am so tired of working in the yard that I dread raking leaves and bringing my plants in for the season. However, by spring I am so excited to get outside again I can't wait to get outside and rake! Funny how the changing of the season makes such a difference. Even my husband must be touched by the spring clean up bug. I came home from work yesterday to find him cutting down dead plant stalks and vacuuming the leaves out of my flower beds. Of course, he also loves my new loppers that I picked up at the end of the season last year. He thinks a great toy. It is supposed to be nice for at least the next two days, so I am hoping to finish getting the leaves out of my flower beds and dug and divide some of my hostas that are already coming up.
