Spring Again

It’s been months since I have had anything to do in the way of gardening, but now that Spring is back I got to start cleaning the flower beds with the kids and get ready to plant a few more plants to fill in the bare spots. It’s fun to see the plants from last year starting to grow again and I am excited by the large number of raspberry shoots that are coming up around the two plants we had last year. Soon we will have to start planting the vegetables again.

I had never thought about it before but yard projects in general seem to be an indicator of Spring as well. I have already put up a fence so the kids can play in the back yard without wandering into the street while Mom’s not looking. We also have some new plans for things we would like to change about the back yard -more flower garden space and probably removing the little deck next to our patio so that the babies can’t crawl under it.

There’s never a dull moment when you have a house and yard to play around with. There’s always something we can think of to make it just a little bit better. It reminds me of a house we looked at when we were trying to buy our house. The yard was amazing with all the little touches in the landscaping and the plants and garden areas. The family wanted to move so they would have a new yard to work on. Maybe that’s what will get us moving when the time comes.
