Backyard Spring Cleaning

We transformed the back porch from its winter purpose of covered fire-wood storage back to our summer sitting area – complete with flowers and mulch. That took some serious muscle, as left-over firewood had to be moved back to the wood pile and re-stacked. We scrubbed and swept until it was “back to normal” and then brought out the patio furniture.

This weekend was also perfect for cleaning the backyard flower beds and doing some serious lawn-mowing.  Though it was pretty cold:  by Sunday afternoon I needed two seatshirts and a travel mug with hot coffee to stay warm on the riding mower.
