A plan is a good thing...
Well, as I walked around
the yard on this thirty something degree
morning with lots of wind,
have a good plan.
We have one more week of school before all 4 of us are
home for April vacation.
This is going to be a week of cleaning.
I have tried to get ahead on the inside, because a hurricane
and MANY snow storms have done this property in!
Fences to paint...
(hoping for the 50's they are promising for the next
love to see some buds on this grand old Maple)
Raking to do...and
sweet little babies...
Lots of branches and tree limbs to gather..
husband will be
Perennial cleanup....with a smile
I am sure....
I will be wielding
my favorite Muck boots
(with a fuzzy liner, I might add)
We added strings of solar lights, colorful here,
white there....all around the yard and
we have decided to
keep them all up
they are gorgeous at night!
The raised beds need a little cleaning,
and the soil needs to be turned...I would do anything to
prepare for pumpkins and tomatoes....zinnias....beans....squash....
The tree line will fill in
soon...dormancy giving in to
the new life...
I must trim the tops of the Montauk Daisies...
...and whisper sweet words of
encouragement to the Bleeding Heart....
Yep...those windows need washing...
but maybe I will sneak out here
with a book one afternoon....
This is my favorite kind of cleaning...
it is better than a shiny countertop or a vacuumed floor...better than
fresh sheets on your bed...
It's all part of the plan.
Kids plan: play outside morning, noon, and night :)
