Spring cleaning (outside) has started around here.
This week it was mulch.
It's always fun to watch it delivered...
Tractor trailer loads are "pooped" out on to the parking lot.
There's a mechanism inside the truck that pushes it out..
And you though it was the mulch elves.
Then it is loaded onto a truck with a Bobcat.
Now it's time for the "mulch elves".
It is distributed by them with wheelbarrows and hands only.
They work very hard and long.
Today they started at 7AM and worked til 6 PM
and it was drizzling the entire day.
This is the Forsythia that was cut down this time of year in 2013.
It's starting to yellow
and it looks like it will be allowed to bloom this year,
as will my Hydrangeas.
This area was pretty much denuded by them last year in their
"leaf removal maneuvers".
I decided to just mulch it rather than seed it.
This ground would be tough to seed and I thought it may help the tree roots that are all scarred up as well.
We'll see how this holds up !!
For now, it looks a lot better and..
Enjoy your weekend.
