Nibbling Away

We've been slowly nibbling away at yard work and garden chores. 

I asked SM to take the hard rake and pull all the dried up weeds and grasses while I went in behind and pulled the more stubborn stuff by hand.

I was pleased to see that the grasses that took over the garden last year were NOT Bermuda.  Although I did pull a fair share of super long Bermuda roots.

SM hit the strawberry beds too.  I need to get in and thin them out soon.

Here's a shot of the monster Holly Trees that we had decapitated a few weeks ago. 

I went and shaped them up a bit.  The yellow "Privet" bushes should fill in the empty spaces later this Summer and give us more privacy than what we have now.

All in all we did a MAJOR trim to the whole back yard.  Nothing was missed.

Even Scooter got his @;)


  1. Wow! Y'all have been busy! I hope you get tons of strawberries. I really need to go get some. Enjoy the spring thaw!

  2. Oh, your weather is so, so, so far ahead of our weather! But that's okay. Keep posting pictures. It gives me hope.

  3. What a beautiful day to work in the garden. Maybe spring is going to come after all.

  4. Hey! There's no snow! So THAT'S what the ground looks like! I can't wait until it arrives up here.
