Even though I haven’t had time to work at cleaning up my backyard for the start of my “work in the yard” season, I couldn’t resist the color. To explain my enthusiasm, you must realize that at this time last year, the yard was a totally barren space with only a single pine tree, a few azalea bushes and some scrawny nandinas.

But now, after placing two and a half tons of path stones, laying an 18 x 20 foot paver patio, mulching an eighty sq yard area and planting a variety of about 135 plants, it’s starting to look pretty good. The memory of last year is making me tired.
