Spring happenings

Well, much has gone on at the ranch for getting cleaned up for spring. The first step we needed to do was get the gutters cleaned out(they were over-flowing with leaves), get all the leaves cleaned up and hauled off (the whole 2/3 acre was ankle deep) and get the grass cut. We decided it was just too much for us to tackle and the lawn mower died. So we hired a yard crew to come get us straightened out. My daughter laughed at that-yard so bad it required a crew! Not only that, about half way through, they called for help!
first the gutters were cleaned out:
Which resulted in the beds around the house being a mess. Then they started blowing all the leaves into piles and picking them up and loading them into the trailer:
Because the trailer was full, they needed 2 other trucks to put the equipment in! But the results were very nice! All clean!
So I was able, after all that, to get flowerbeds cleaned out and mulched and I have planted a few things here and there:
Veggie garden looking good:
Cutting garden going good, too. Zinnias, my favorite, shasta and gerber daisies. English peas planted along the fence:
