Beautiful Weather for Spring Cleanup

This last few days have been absolutely beautiful.  Here are some pics of the yard....

Daffies are doing good.  Some raking done.

Pulled the leaves aside and the fairy garden made it thru the winter

Took my little girl out of the shed

These were big mounds of dirt that the plow dug up.
I had to chop it all up and rake it into place.

Here also.... Have to order some soil to fill in.  This is usually hubby's job but he cant do stuff as yet so it was left to me to do.  Not as neat as he does it but it is done, yay.... Perhaps I will lose a pound or two.....

New plants to put into the ground
Bleeding hearts coming out.

The rhodo is starting to bloom.

The pool is up and running.  Usually do this in June but

 our wonderful pool lady fix'd the pump cause the motor seized up at the end of the season last year.  Nice it waited....  She had it ready to go so I did the pool.  Got the leaves out of it and vac'd it, gave it some chemicals and it is good to go....

Trees starting to bud.  Some raking done.

Took all my things out of the shed.  The wheels belonged to my dad and they mean a lot to me.
Have to give the kokopelli's on the wall some paint. I am going with terra cotta to match the urns.

More daffies

Pansies to plant.... Need to go get some more for the porch and the shed.
So so much more to do but it is Spring and I love every minute...
Hugs, LJ
