A retro blog. Yesterday Sandy bought a small chainsaw and we worked in the back yard. The main accomplishment was transforming the 20 foot tall fig tree to a bush again. I raked the leaves out of the front garden and transplanted a couple of foxgloves and lenten roses, then sat on a yoga mat and pulled up ground ivy and vinca. There is still much work to do. I was a little sorry that he took down the redbud tree but it was covered in wild grapevine and getting on the roof of the back building so it needed to be done.
