Good morning. It's another gorgeous day here in New England. As I look out my door each morning, I see all the beautiful little green leaves on the maple trees out front. Today all the leaves are almost full grown. There's something very special about seeing all this Spring Green everywhere.
Well yesterday was quite a busy day. SIL Eddie and his friend Cliff stopped by Home Depot Garden Center and picked up a dozen of the shrubs that I had picked out the day before. Then they brought them here and proceeded to clean up out front and plant all the new shrubs.
The shrubs are called "Thuja occidentalis "Smaragd" (Emerald Green Arborvitae). They can grow ten to fifteen feet tall and three to four feet wide. Hopefully, this will give me back the privacy we once had here. Here's a photo of Cliff planting one of the shrubs.
While the guys were working out front, the mailman came by. He mentioned that a couple of low hanging branches from our trees were low enough to brush against his truck when he pulled up to the sidewalk. So Eddie got our saw and cut away all the low hanging branches. Here's a photo of Eddie working with the tree saw.
Eddie helped me set up Pogo's play yard so that my little guy could stay outside and watch everything and still be safe.
Next time Pogo goes in his play yard, I'll put one of his blankets in there along with his water bowl. I can sit on the bench behind him and crochet or read a book while we take in a lot of fresh air.
Eddie and Cliff are back here working in the yard now, so I need to get dressed. As soon as I show them where the new plants are going, the guys will plant them for me. So, on that note I'll take my leave. Till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
