IT’S A JUNGLE OUT THERE !!
My little house sits quite close to the road and the very small front yard that I have is fairly easy to keep looking presentable. My neighbors can rest peacefully in the knowledge that I will keep the grass trimmed and the front porch swept and clean.
The back yard however, is an entirely different matter. Yes, it IS a jungle. I’ve tried over the years to tame it but it’s a thankless task. I guess if I had a man handy they could use a brush-hog and get it under control ... but that’s an expensive project and it would need to be done on a regular basis.
We very seldom get snow in my area so I couldn’t resist taking the two pictures that you see here. My “jungle” looked pretty good under a soft coating of snow but it was a brief respite.
Today it’s raining and, once again, my back yard is wild and untamed. However, Spring is on the way ... the trees are starting to leaf out and the birds are having a hey-day with it all. I can’t ask for much more than that. As the old tune says ... ”the best things in life are free.”
