Friday Yardening

Today is cloudy, breezy, and warm.  I went out and trimmed brush stubs between the house and driveway, and dumped the trimmings in the firepit.  Then I sprayed weedkiller on the remaining stubs.  It should be ready for furrow raking and grass seeding soon.  We'll need to buy a big bag of grass seed for this season.

Violets are beginning to bloom.  Daffodils are in full bloom.

I filled the feeder.  I've been seeing brown-headed cowbirds, house finches, and blackbirds at the feeders.  The dove nest on the porch has two eggs now.
