[From Reader Maggie, her fabulous entry for Weekend Warriors! Thanks for letting us see your neck of the woods.]
We are finally having spring in Oregon which we haven’t had since 2009. A couple of weekends ago, when you posted the lilac photos, I decided to pick a little project to send you. I settled on rhododendrons. I pruned and dug and got a Sawzall and went to town….which eventually led to my taking out some laurel, too. So I had big piles of stuff but left it for the yard guy to get later.
That brings us to last weekend. May 6 was supposed to be in the 70s. Wahoooo! I had already planned a dinner with another family for that day then my brother suggested we invite a friend of my parents (both deceased) because she had been recently widowed. OK, how nice. One thing led to another and I wound up having 20-25 people for dinner that night and couldn’t get a hold of the gardener to haul everything out of there so you will see how I dealt with it, out of sight…party on!
Gardener came yesterday and mowed and took everything away for me to make another mess this weekend and it’s forecast to be in the 80s!!!!
Clearly my next project is the patio!!!
