Yard work has begun

Isaac has discovered that he LOVES yard work! Yay! Wonder how long that'll last...

Miss Alice can't do the pruning work, but she can pick up limbs and pile them up.

Grape hyacinths are popping up everywhere.

The irises are going simply mad right now. The yard seems to have an abundance of white and purple ones, but no other colors, and the ones here are just the plain-edged kind with no ruffles. I'm going to have to see if my Collinsville pal with all the irises will let me dig and divide some of hers.

There is now an enormous pile of limbs and sticks in the backyard that must be dealt with... not to mention the defunct pool that needs to be filled in with dirt. Much to do, much to do...
