I don't plan on using those again for many months! And then I tackled the driveway entrance. Our driveway is about 400 feet long and the entry is carved into the slope of the hill. I had built some stone walls out there a couple years back and the area just need some general cleaning.
I raked out all the leaves, pulled all the emerging prickers, and clipped all the little brush shoots. Then I cleaned out the pachysandra as well. This batch has been slow to establish itself. I expect it doesn't like being under the hemlock trees. Those trees were planted by me while I was pregnant for my first daughter. They are 33 years old!
And a not so welcome sign of spring as well. As I am sitting here typing this I feel an unwelcome slight tickle. I glance down at my arm and sure enough. The first deer tick of the season is waltzing along it. Time for a shower and clean clothes!
