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.
