It Has Begun...

spring clean-up.



With hundreds of pine trees
shedding millions
(maybe billions)
of pine needles
and a few oak trees
adding to the mix,




 this will be a common site
at our place over
the next several weeks.
This is a very, very small
pile compared to what lies ahead.



Our supervisor.

It such a great time of year to be outdoors working!

Donna said...

Oh Jill, this is a huge job, I know! I only had about 12 pines along the street. Do they shed needles!

Becky looks to be a big help! As does your Supervisor! Need to harness him and have him pull the wagon!

Love, love, love your new header, Jill!

Blessings,
Donna

Oh that's what I would do too. A small manageable pile - no matter how long it takes.
