Default Holiday Work

Holiday work at home. The boss is working today so I am (was) working on my yard. Today is the first day I could raise my arms above my shoulders without hurting since I laid sod last week.

Funny, a week ago we had snow in the air. Thursday 83, Friday 88, Saturday 89 and today 93. I think I sweated off 5 pounds.

The boss went to Loweís last night and picked up about 60 plants. 4 Azaleas, 24 Vicca, 2 Pompano Grass, 2 Japanese Oak (they were $55 each), plus other perennial flowers and shrubs. She told me that if I was making other peoples lawns look good, I was making ours the same way. I call he boss because Iíve seen the job and donít want it. It will be 38 years in September so I guess itís working.

Youíll love this, My neighbor across the street bought 15 potted Crape Myrtles. He planted most of them pots and all until I noticed what he was doing. I helped him redo them. He then told me he did the same for almost all he planted this year so I helped him with them too. I got a contract from him to build his soil, fertilize, and general soil maintenance.

Happy Easter
