work day

The kids and I worked in the yard today cutting down diseased branches off shrubs that were not looking so hot anymore. We also had a bad winter and there was a lot of frost that killed some plants that had to be dug up or cut out. Our front yard looks so bare right now. Our back also looks bare as I had to dig up the shrubs and the Gardinia. The shrubs will grow back but the Gardinia is toast. Luckily no one sees the back so I have to wrry about the front right now. We need to buy some mulch and remulch the areas and then replant waht we had to dig up. We have had no rain for months so we will have to be sparing on watering the plants as we are in a drought. That will make it hard for the plants to grow healthy but in time. :) We will make due with what we have now. Our rainy season starts in June so we are praying for a lot of it. Our hurricane season also starts in June so we are praying that those stay away. :)
