Nothing like some freshly cut grass to make you appreciate springtime. I love the sound of the lawnmowers in the neighborhood (as long as it's after 9 am), the smell of just cut grass in the air, and the crisp, trim yards on my street.
When I cut the grass the other afternoon, this was my view from the garage looking out into my yard. I'm working on getting that front bed weeded; it's a long process, especially with those mossy things dropping from the trees.
And here's the view from my driveway as I left for a date. While I don't always love living in an older home and neighborhood, I'm thankful for this view as I leave and come home each day. This time of year makes me appreciate having a yard that I need to care for and a place to come home to each evening.
On my yardwork to do list this weekend? Planting my windowboxes and hanging baskets. :)
How are things going in your yard these days? Spring is an exciting time!
