Weeding buddy

Weeding buddy

I've been lucky to have a weeding buddy come over every week or two for the last couple of months.  Those problem perennials that I didn't quite remember to weed in the last year?  They're almost all ship shape!  I suspect that one more round of weeding will bring the last couple of rows in line.  Thanks, Anndrena!

I thought Anndrena looked like a sailor in the picture and since I am in my sea faring navigation mindset, I clicked on her link. Looking at her resume, I concluded you are lucky to have a friend so brilliant as you.

I see you're in short sleeves. The weather looks lovely! I check it every day out there. Isn't it amazing how much faster you can get something done with another set of hands?

Maggie --- I agree --- I'm very fortunate to know her. :-)

Mitsy --- It's been so beautiful here long as you seize the right moments. One hour it's frosty and frigid, the next the sun is shining and I'm in shirt-sleeves, and then an hour after that it's raining. That's spring for you. :-)
