We have green grass!

March 24 and the grass is mowed and GREEN! We've been cutting back a few of the tall grasses each nice day (the ones in the first photo below got whacked down tonight) and everything is sprouting and greening up like crazy!

Hard to believe. . .

The first day of spring is just three days away and we've had some great days for pruning and mowing down grasses getting everything ready to start growing again! We can hardly WAIT!

Springing ahead!

It's the 12th of March and for the last two days, the weather has been nice enough that we could get out in the yard. We've been pruning shrubs and trees like crazy. I love cutting everything back because even though it looks barren and drab right now, the new spring growth can't be far behind. I can hardly wait to start filling those flower pots!

Best of all, Daylight Savings Time will give us some extra hours outdoors!
