Spring has finally hit my little MT. community. It has actually been nice and warm for about the last 10 days.
Having a terminal case of spring fever I started my annual spring yard clean up.
I planted 3 new rose bushes, pruned a lilac bush, 3 oleander bushes and some god awful desert bush that I have no idea what it is and removed one tree whose roots have been getting in the main drain to my septic tank.
You haven't lived until you have planted 3 rose bushes in dry clay soil.
I post this as a friendly warning to those of you that are still snowed in. Don't overdue on your first day. My truck and ATV trailer are full and ready for a dump run. My yard is in pretty good shape now but it's going to take me a day or 2 to recuperate. I have the worst backache imagineable, a couple of blisters and a sunburn but I am not complaining. It was great.
Your first day of spring is not very far away. Hang in there.
Hoping you all warm up soon,
