Well spring made it to our house and the plum trees bloomed, then the pear and finally the nectarine. Will we get any fruit? If we do will the squirrels beat us to them? Who knows, now it’s summer. Yes already. Spring was about 2 days then bam-a-lang muggy summer fell upon us.
We worked in the yard all day! I bet our neighbors are glad because the front yard looks 100% better. I’m not joking when I say it really looked like crap. Ya know just like the yard of an abandoned house and really I guess it sorta was. We had not done anything since they cut the tree down in October, but now it’s all better. The rose has a bud on it, I planted tomatoes in the flower bed where the hibiscus used to be, before it froze and refroze.
And as I type this post the phone company is laying new Fiber Optic Lines you will never believe where…that’s right in our back yard. Which, by the way, just happens to be where the fruit trees are and the shed. Yes folks this survey reading, mortgage document specialist put a shed and trees, oh and a little vegetable bed right in the 10 foot utility easement. Yes my dear internets I knew where it was, but the service poles on are the other side of the fence, so the odds were in our favor that that it would be no big deal-e-oh at all. Did I mention they are “laying” fiber optic lines-- underground? Yeah they are digging in the back yard as I type. But not to worry they are using this hammer do-hicky that is in a hose thingy that pounds it’s way though the ground. It seems to just be vibrating the ground near the trees and under the veggi bed. And who knows maybe they’ll like it, y’all know all that shaking and rocking what-not. I’m not that big on the work part, but I like the sitting and admiring part don’t you?
So have you gotten the chance, weather, to work in your yard? Do you have a yard?
