I found some "spring"...
I saw a little bit of beautiful colour.... wondered what it was..... and walked over from the driveway to check it out. Spring has sprung! Or at least one little handful of dainty flowers has. I am not even really sure what they are...but have decided it is a tiny clump of violets...... growing up from between some paving stones in the back yard.
That did it. Got on some old duds and hurried out while it was still a balmy +12C . This year I can do my own raking and tidying....Wasn't too impressed with the guys I hired last year... (last summer I had a cast on for most of it) .... wheeeeee.... had a great time mowing, raking... bagging up a bunch of old dead leaves and twigs. There is still plenty to do...but already it looks about 900% better than it did 4 hours ago. I should have quit already.... still have to bake and now it is time to think about something for supper...but .... all in all a great day in the yard.
