No Backyard News
Spring is slow in coming this year. At this time we usually have a large pile of brnches, plants and leaves in front of our yard. But because of the snow and rain and cold and wind, there is no pile this year. I seem to be a fair weather gardner now. There is one week left before the city trucks come by to pick up our yard surplus, so maybe by next weekend the pile will have appeared. The deer have helped in cleaning the yard to a small degree. They have pullled up the pansy plants and chewed the new day lily starts down to the ground. I guess the hills have been so covered with snow that they were very hungry and that is why they visited the backyard so often this Winter.
