Every day I wander around the yard for a few minutes to see what's growing and blooming. I do a little weeding and pruning, and Rick blows the still-falling leaves from our pathways back to the mulched beds, but those are the only yard chores we have. The grass-free landscape is indeed proving to be as low-maintenance as we hoped. Now time spent in my yard is a delightul choice, rather than mandatory drudgery.

My patio pink lemon tree is covered in fragrant blossoms. I like to sit by it and just inhale the magical perfume.
|Majestic Beauty hawthorne tree|
Our native beautyberry is shooting out new green growth at a rapid pace as well.
I can't wait to get home every day and see what is sprouting.
Perfect temperatures, bluebird skies, growing plants everywhere. It's the best time of year!
