Cleaning up the yard | Manvel, Texas Photographer

We spent most of the morning yesterday raking leaves and acorns and cutting back plants that froze during our ONE freeze this winter.

This was one large flower bed out of nine in our front yard. There are many more flower beds to be done and a lot more leaves to rake.

As we get older we begin to realize a lot of flower beds means a lot of work but there is nothing prettier than a well-maintained yard.

On the gulf coast of Texas, in wintertime, we tend to get more of the overcast rainy days with no sunshine and the gloomy cloudy weather. That is what our winters are like.

We hauled the acorns, leaves, and trimmings to the mulch pile to be reused later on.

We are ready for springtime, and I am ready to plant some flower seeds.

There is something about the fresh spring air, bright green grass, flowers, and shrubs blooming, and lots of sunshine.

  1. Our youngest daughter, the kids and I went and bought some garden plants day before yesterday. Now we will plant the tomato plants and pepper plants in pots for another month then transplant to the garden but it is better to get them started now. We are going to go ahead and plant the potatoes, onions, and garlic in the garden now.
