To date we spent countless hours working in the yard. We’ll never have an excuse to say there’s nothing to do ever again.
We’ve added plants in the front yard and back that we have acquired through the kindness of friends and plant sales. We have pulled so much overgrown English ivy that we could cover Fenway Park. We hate to discard plants, so it was a bonus that Laura’s boss took 2 contractors bags full. We still have more to go!
We have realized that the front yard needs a good thatch removal and reseeding as we have kept up mowing with the breakneck speed of the spring growing. Hopefully we can get the grass looking as lush as the neighbors very soon, but as with all things in life patience is a virtue.
