Yard Debris….

DSC_0018
The first days of spring yard work are not my favorite. At this moment I am in full procrastination mode. I need to be outside and attempt to finish raking up yard debris. Because of the hills on our property this task is brutal on the back. I resembled a ninety year old woman when I got out of bed this morning. I am pleased because I cleared one hill and even conquered my fear of the electric trimmer.

DSC_0014This hill is planted with a low growing St. Johns Wort which produces the most beautiful yellow flowers in the summer. In the foreground is Russian sage(Perovskia atriplicifoliaRussian sage, is a herbaceous perennial plant that is native to central Asia in an area that includes Afghanistan, Iran, Pakistan, and Tibet.[1] In spite of the common name, Russian sage is not in the same genus as other Salvias, which are commonly called "sage".)

This is the area I am going to tackle shortly. I can't wait to get my hands back on the electric trimmer…I feel I am becoming a pro with this power tool.

What I do love about this time of year and being outside is the birds and we have a large population of cardinals .
