Happy Holidays everyone. As Ann reminded us, yesterday was the shortest
day of the year which means . . . Spring is around the bend. I'm taking
this winter to rest up for the new season. Last year I tore out old
bushes which were too large for the house (taught my 12yo to drive so
she could yank them out w/the jeep) and replanted around 2/3rds of the
house. I'm deciding what to put in the other 1/3. I'm expanding it
considerably so mowing will be easier. The problem is a huge magnolia
that shades most of the area. I plan to use native plants and mulch
throughout - gotta feed the wildlife ya know. I'm also planning to put
a path through what we refer to as "the lower 40." We have a little
over 3 acres and it sure got out of hand these past couple of years due
to lots going on here. Next year promises to be better!
Well I'm babbling - just e***d to be off from work for a while and
looking forward to seeing all of my bulbs and bushes this spring.
Hope everyone has a terrific holiday and a warm and cozy winter.
