Everywhere I look I see green.

The ferns are especially lush this year.

They camouflage the need for repair and paint on the porch step.

The geraniums take front and center stage.  What a wondrous number of blooms on the one plant!

Got the shrubs trimmed this week.  A nice workout.
And then I just kicked all the trimmings onto the ground of the garden bed.  Free mulch, don'tcha know?!
That's just how I roll.

Have a terrific weekend!

It's green here too! That's something really noticeable this year since this is the first year we have been out of our drought. I had almost forgotten what green looked like.

(And the husband had almost forgotten what a pain in the neck it is to mow the lawn so often. LOL)

Love the view from your place.

Things do look lush, just so pretty and green. I love spring when the green first shows such a great color after the dull days of winter.

I had to comment here...because after reading the last bit of this post; I had a DUH moment!

free mulch?!!!??? I spent the better part of today, cleaning up and hauling trimmings and clippings to the wagon to be taken down behind the barn for burning later... are you talking small clippings or big stuff? I gathered up green grass for one compost bin. Then I gathered up some dried grass and some dead limbs for the other compost.
the hay will be boxed and tied up into bales for the winter for the chickens.
Your idea to let the cuttings fall was an eye opener for me. Really made me think!
thank you!!!
