Monday Yardening

Today is mild and breezy, with a mix of sun and clouds.

Round 1: I planted, covered, watered, and mulched a sarvicetree and a purple juneberry along the fence.

I also saw a green tiger beetle.  These are voracious insectivores and pretty to watch.  Just don't touch them because they have savage jaws and chemical defenses. 

EDIT 5/29/17: Round 2, we picked up a mound of raked grass.  This completes the ritual meadow.  \o/

EDIT 5/29/17: Round 3, we picked up sticks in the yard near the house, moving back to the east edge.
