I love spring. Not as much as fall, mind you, but still. I like the cool/hot weather that can never seem to make up its mind. I like seeing flowers bloom – what an awesome reminder of new life and rebirth. But most of all, I love that it’s the kick off of Yard Work Season.
Yes, you read that right. What I love most about spring is that it gives me the opportunity to work with my hands. Nothing says a hard days work like a day pulling weeds and shoveling mulch. Mowing the lawn (while it’s hard work) is INSTANT gratification – and who doesn’t love that?
We’ve already had 4 humming birds grace our kitchen window. The daffodils that Grandma sent last fall are in full bloom. I keep finding lots of awesome big rocks to include in our flower bed. We bought a lawn mower (FINALLY! Thanks to the Watts and Schroeders for letting us borrow theirs all last season) and a weed-whacker. Man, that thing is much more powerful than I expected…I LIKE it! But we’ve got one super springy problem…
I’ve pulled them, I’ve sprayed them, I’ve cursed their very existence, and I still can’t seem to rid our yard of weeds. HELP! Seriously, help. It seems like no matter what I do, they come right back.
But that won’t stop me from tryin’!
