I spent the morning trimming the trees alongside the driveway. I thought Mike and I spent a considerable amount of time and effort clearing out the dead wood last winter. In any event, the willow branches will no longer scrape the car and truck when I head out the driveway. I cleared back further from the driveway in the vain hope of keeping it clear for the summer. This may turn into a twice yearly chore.
I mowed the back lawn after two weeks away – quite an effort. Yes, sir, yes, sir two bags full. I will need to undertake a study of self feeding spools on Black and Decker lawn trimmers. The instructions are opaque, but at least I saved the used spool as a guide. I also supplemented the water on the lamium and yarrows. The two outside yarrows, coral I think, have begun to bloom. The bloom puffs are still green so I cannot identify the color for sure. The white yarrow in the middle is a little behind.
