    grass is not green here yet, but spring flowers are growing. just getting started on cleanups. they are not too bad, but all the bending over gets to you, mowing is way easier!

    I finished cutting down pampas grass today. Would like to get over about half my lawns by the end of week to clean up leaves. Probably be mowing weekly by the end of the month.
