Gardening

7 May

We’ve had beautiful weather for the past few weekends which has given us an opportunity to get out and explore our gardens a bit.  Thanks to the utter lack of green thumb in our house, we lean heavily on professional guidance for how/when/where to plant.  But, it didn’t take a gardenologist to realize that we had a dead juniper tree at the front of our house.  Tim and Lucas took the opportunity to chop it down last weekend.  Gardening

They had to don their gardening gloves, and get out the proper equipment.

And someone needed to touch every garden tool outside.
