Spring is here. The grass is green. The flowers are blooming. The trees are will have leaves in a week or two. I need to get the lawnmower ready to cut the grass. I hope it works, otherwise, I'll have to take it to the shop and borrow the neighbour's mower. This year I hope to finish the vegetable garden and work area, the herb garden, a flower bed at the back of the garage and a small raised patio for a swinging chair. I'm hoping to get a new lawn in the backyard this year. The existing lawn is very bumpy and hilly and patchy in many areas - it needs to be regraded and done properly. Some new patio furniture may be order this year after the patio is leveled. Bring on the outdoor life.
