My Soroptimist Club presidency is coming to an end and I received a $100 gift certificate to a greenhouse as my parting gift. I went there on Saturday afternoon and strolled through the aisles, but left empty-handed because I couldn't decide what I wanted.
On Sunday, I armed myself with my long-handled loppers, a pruning saw, a hedge trimmer and a leaf blower and tackled the trash trees and weeds around the yard. I filled two construction-grade trash bags with branches, garbage, leaves and shingle fragments from our roof replacement earlier in the spring. Amazingly, I'm not that sore today. It must be all the yoga.
Now that I've cleared some space for desirable plant life around my yard, I think I'm ready to make a list and start shopping for flowers and shrubbery. Any recommendations?
