The grass was pretty long before Ed finally was able to cut it for the first time this spring. It has rained a lot the past several weeks, and he hadn't had a dry day to mow till now. Just in time, as he's going to Australia tomorrow on business! If you look carefully, you can also see the electric company's crew trimming Miss Carol's maple trees.
Our rhododenedrums are in bloom and look beautiful. Some of the other shrubs were eaten by the dear, but look like they're trying to come back. All but one of the 10 trees we planted have survived the winter. Hopefully, the yard will look beautiful when Crystal comes home in two weeks (who's counting?).
