Hello and HAPPY FRIDAY! It looks like it’s going to be another beautiful day here in Maine.
Yesterday I went outside with my shopping bag in hand to scrounge around for some twigs to build a fire in the wood stove. And well, one thing lead to another and before I knew it I had my pruners and a rake out there and was yelling for the HH to come help me.
Not get twigs, but to cut the scraggily brush and saplings that had come up along the edge of the of the property this year.
I swore I was done with gardening projects for the year… but well, that didn’t last long. Even the HH was like what happened to you staying in your pajamas until next spring? 🙂 I don’t know, once a gardener, always a gardener, right?
But just cleaning up that little stretch, it made me so happy. I do love a good mini project after all.
I don’t think the HH was super thrilled though when I told him the area would look much better if the leaves were raked up and hauled off to the woods.
But look at the difference… The right side of the of our little forest of birch trees that we worked on yesterday looks much more tidy and picturesque than the left. I guess that means we’ll be back out there today to finish up the project… just as soon as we take a few old lady pills that is. 🙂
I haven’t even begun to think about what we’re going to do with the rest of the yard. But with an entire winter to figure it out, all I can say is this… the possibilities… are endless, and I couldn’t be happier.
Wishing you the very best on this gorgeous fall day,
