a little bit of garden work

This afternoon, DH and I got out into the yard a bit. The crocus are blooming in the back yard. So pretty!




Each spring, DH burns the tall grasses in the yard. Get rid of the old growth…make way for the new growth.

DH planted a little lettuce, too. Can’t wait until it starts to sprout!

The daffodils are growing taller and showing more blooms.
