I had the highest reading yet on my pedometer! Even higher than on Friday, when I worked all day, then went to the Y in the evening and did six miles on the elliptical.
I was cleaning out an over-grown area in the back yard and I was on my feet all day.
This is the part of the yard that I "beautified."
This is where I cleared out all of the overgrowth.
This is most of what I cleaned out.
One of the new hostas that I planted.
Where this hose is, just hours before,
there was a sticky bushes.
We've decided to tear all of the sticky bushes out.
They are ugly, we don't like them- so "outta here!"
Cleaned all of this out. Our Rose of Sharon was out of control.
We may cut it all the way down. Tore out the weeds and will plant here.
I think my favorite tool is my pruners. Dug bought a big ol' set of pruner/trimmers that would probably cut my arm off if I wasn't careful. I love them though. As I've said before, in the yard, I am both judge and jury. If I say it goes, it goes. If I allow it to stay, it stays. This is my third summer here and I am determined that this place will be a showplace when I get done with it. It certainly has the potential. There isn't tons of acreage, but there is a lot of land and lots of "hidey-holes" to be cleaned out. I'm on a mission.
*Please let me know if there are any problems with my new lay-out on your end.
