Highway Hedgerow

Changes were mulled over, consequences – benefits and detriments – weighed and now the time has come, the plans have been made, fence removed. Well almost the fence is removed.  Three-fourths is out of the bindy mess of grass and dirt.  We are workin’ on it.  What fence?  Why?  What the heck is goin’ on?  … Continue reading »

Sunday Not-Work Work

Oh my, what a day yesterday!  I wanted to work on the neglected back yard a bit.  It will soon be summer  and the backyard and other purely ornamental areas will be in nearly irredeemable disarray. (Yes, for some places in the yard and house summer gets here in a flash, if I’m not careful.)

Spring Will Be Here in Just a Few More Minutes

But as we all know the season comes when it wants to and often none of the seasons ever seem to coincide with their appointed times, solstices and equinoxes.  You may, depending upon where you live and your mind-set, … Continue reading »
