We have 2 graduations to celebrate this Spring. My Daughter who graduates from college in a couple of weeks and my oldest son who is graduating from high school in June. We want to celebrate both achievements with backyard parties so we’re all pitching in, but no one is working harder than my husband.
I don’t know where he finds the energy. We have a lot of problems with moles and there is a lot of damage from the critters this year. While our front drive is paved the back driveway isn’t so he dragged it and then got the idea to do the yard which we raked last weekend. I’m hoping that this will green us up a little. It’s still cold here and with the heavy frosts is still dark and dreary here.
In the past I’ve had to situate all of my furniture and decorations in a specific way because my dog was blind and would plow into pots and decorations and break them. Sadly he passed away last Spring so this year we’ve been rearranged things. As I look around I miss him terribly and want to put all of the furniture back to the way it was before he left us.
I have tea cup planters that used to have herbs planted in them but I had to put them away to keep them safe from Thomas. This year I’m putting them out and planting my herbs. I’m going to try my hand at catnip and drying it in a dehydrater for the cats, but the thought has occurred to me that the scent of them dehydrating may drive them crazy.
What are you doing to get ready for Spring/Summer?
