It feels and looks a little more summery around here! It’s 80F, the lawn mower is running (apparently the grass wasn’t deterred by the recent snowfall! and I pulled some of the summer furniture out….Yay! But first, the front yard had some clean-up that needed to be done. As a result of the recent heavy wet snow and ice, we lost many of the branches off of the pine tree in our front yard. Last evening #2 son climbed the tree and used the chain saw to lop them off cleanly and DH finished the job today. Once the branches hit the ground they seemed to multiply somehow!……….
Our front porch is typical of older Midwestern farmhouses, with its railings, wood floors and the obligatory swing (my opinion!). It’s a wonderful place to do hand work, grab a cup of morning coffee or eat a meal……all listening to the chorus of birds singing their little hearts out!!!!!……..
