    It's called spring...either sit it out or do what can be done considering the conditions...maybe go prune some hedges or cut back perennials from last season....that's whats planned here for tomorrow with full rain gear in hand.

    Perennials were cut back last fall, leafs were done last fall and hedge and shurbs were pruned and trimmed last fall didnt grow much over the winter. Mowers are ready. So i guess i will just have to drink alot of beer this week and wait for the sun to shine.

    I sat at a local cvs store this eve and watched a landscapre crew from maryland put down bagged mulch in the rain. I havent figured out why they are so far south, Im almost in north carolina, unless they had the entire bid for the stores in va. Glad i was warm and dry, they looked miserable
