Wednesday Yardening

Today is sunny, breezy, and warm.  I fed the birds.  I saw a house finch and a blackbird at the feeder today.

We picked up sticks from the area between the house and the driveway.  That will later need to be brush-trimmed, raked, and sown with grass seed.  But it looks much better now.  We filled a whole dumpster with sticks.  We also spent 15-20 minutes digging out an iron stake that was poking up a couple inches above the ground.  Good thing we found that before the mower did.  

We accomplished a lot more than usual for a first yardening day of the year -- probably about twice our typical amount, because of the Iron Stake of Doom.  I am exhausted.  But I feel very accomplished!  Yay.  Yay.  Go us!
