April 21, The Morning After

aprilmosaicmondayMy yard is bursting with new growth and color! I can’t get enough of the flowering trees in my backyard. It is literally the most colorful time of the year here.

april21aThis is what it looked like last week in the backyard. The silver maples in the middle of the yard were cut down. They were blocking the sunlight so the grass started dying slowly and now the yard is barren. When it rains it’s as if the entire yard was slipping into Neighbor Theresa’s yard next door. We’re doubling down this year in our attempt to grow some grass.

If you look closely, you’ll see my beautiful flowering trees beyond the wood. When they are in full bloom they are beautiful. Here’s what they look like now.
