Round One -- We shoveled ash out of the firepit and dumped it in the prairie garden. Then we picked up sticks from the grass wall in the south lot toward the house.
Round Two -- I dumped out three bags of topsoil in the hollow beyond the patio. It's not really topsoil though, it's full of wood chips in muck. >_< Oh well. I threw down some grass and clover seed; hopefully it will sprout in that mess. At least the hollow is less deep now.
The cherry trees are blooming in the orchard.
