SPRING has finally arrived here in my corner of the universe.
And that means . . . it's All Hands on Deck getting the garden back into shape!
Tom does most of the heavy lifting -- or, in this case, heavy pulling of the neighbor's English Ivy off the fence. (If not for Tom's annual battle, the neighbor's English Ivy would be covering our house by now. It's the kudzu of the neighborhood.)
Brian (home for a week before starting his summer research position) took on the icky job of cleaning up my pond. (More on why it was particularly icky this year another day.) But, trust me, Really Icky.
Jenny was everywhere, enjoying freshly-turned nightcrawlers and fresh soil. She also ended up having a bath because she couldn't quite resist the lure of the Icky Pond Detritus -- rolling in it whenever we weren't watching.
And me? I just loved every minute!
