April Showers to May Flowers

April 19th, 2010 · No Comments

Hubby and I have been working feverishly in the yard and on the landscape for the past several weekends. We will continue to make adjustments as needed up until May 22. On that day, we are hosting a wedding ceremony on the lawn. It’s very exciting, but an awful lot of physical labor that Old Kimmer is just not accustomed to on a regular basis.
Hubby and I have removed old plantings and replaced with dozens of new. We have raked leaves, trimmed hedges, picked up piles of sticks and pine cones, and cleaned out ponds, waterfalls, and fountains. We’ve had new mulch, pine straw and a portion of sod laid. We have fertilized, insecticized, aerated and mowed. If this landscape does not look the absolute best it has ever looked, my back and hands will have been sacrificed for naught!
Unfortunately, a defenseless pine tree was also sacrificed at my unyielding hand. I have an electric hedge trimmer and I got a little carried away on my first attempt. (I hope AL Gore can forgive me for contributing to global warming.) I can’t even imagine the trouble I may get into when I get my hands on a pressure washer for the first time! I wonder if squirrels like strong showers?
