Day 233, Part 2: Day is Done
Sunday, August 21, 2011
Yesterday and today were both yardwork days - we spent virtually the entire time outside, pruning, removing, replanting, raking, sweeping - you name it.
I wish I had thought to take more 'before' pictures, but alas, it didn't occur to me until I went to work on the driveway. We have laurel along a stone wall down one side, and the last time anything serious was done in terms of pruning or cutting back was probably a good four (maybe five) years ago.
Anyway, here are three before shots:
...and a couple hours after:
Certainly neater than it was! I think there's a slight hump to the right side that I'll try to even up tomorrow (as long as it doesn't rain) - I used the string-with-two-stakes method, but even so, I'm not much at keeping things lined up very well, especially when I'm trying to balance on top of a wall, lol...
Now you know what's been keeping me busy the past few days. And no wonder I'm so tired. Between getting to bed late last night and the relatively hard work, I'm looking forward to bedtime. Goodnight, Sparklers, wherever you are--!
