WW: Springtime Work-in-progress


This was my project yesterday afternoon. You can see how late our Spring is - still no leaves on the trees but the shrubs are leafing and the perennials are up.


Still a few stubborn leaves to rake (even after 10 wheelbarrows full) but I think it's a big improvement!

For more Wordless Wednesdays check out the WW Headquarters and 5 Minutes for Mom.

Well done! I see that your hosta is up about as much as ours. Our springs are 'very similar'.

That is a lot of work. When I take the kids out to play today I want to do some yard work. Just little stuff, but it will feel good to get it done. I want to buy one of those upside down tomato platers. Have you seen them advertised? What do you think?

That looks great!

We still have zero perrenials up and only buds happening on the trees.

But that's Canada for ya.

Hello from another WNY blogger! Found you on Scribbit's post mentioning Niagara Falls.

Good work on the garden. I spent all yesterday doing the same thing.

That looks so nice. My yard has no landscaping. Maybe someday.

It looks so neat and well planed. Well done.
