Last week there was a flurry of activity around here.
It's that time.
The tanbark fairies have arrived..
The early part of the week was spent pruning and cleaning up.
That's a very scary time for me
They don't know a rose from a Rhododendron..
As it is ,
They cut down all the Hydrangeas and someones Lilacs.
It looks so much cleaner and tidier now.
Sorry that truck is there..he's painting my bathroom.
That's another story.
The next day it snowed.
The snow turned brown from the tanbark dye.
A well deserved lunch break...
In previous years they used 6 wheel barrows and spread it by hand.
Much quicker but used a lot more tanbark, I think.
There are five streets of cottages inside a large oval.
They used to do it all in almost one day...
This way they get two streets done each day.
Have you done your Spring cleanup yet??
