Today's Yardening: Wood Pickup

It's a beautiful day outside today.  Tasks completed ...

* Fed birds.
* Picked up several armloads of fragmented logs from around the mulberry tree beside the garage.
* Made plans to ...
** Move several larger logs tomorrow
** Get clover and grass seed to cover bare ground around the tree

We have agreed that reclaiming some of the yard around the mulberry is a goal for this spring, so that hopefully it won't turn into such a giant patch of weeds as usual.

Poem: "Scarier Things"

This poem came out of the March 3, 2015 Poetry Fishbowl.  It was inspired by a prompt from kelkyag.  It has been selected in an audience poll for sponsorship out of the general fund.  This poem belongs to the series Monster House.

Warning: This poem mentions the end of WWII and some of the aftermath from that.  It's not explicit, but it may not be to everyone's taste.  Also, there is alcohol consumption for commemoration and comfort, not to the point of extreme drunkenness.  Think before you click.
