Overall we've had a pretty nice spring here in New Hampshire. I should say we've actually had spring this year, at least so far. In fact, last week ended with some gorgeous weather, more like late May than April.
With the beautiful weather and things finally drying out, I spent much of my time outside doing yard work. Even though I know crocuses are long gone for many of you, mine are finally starting to bloom.
Now that the flower beds are all raked, so much is popping up, and it is exciting to see it all happening.
Last weekend my husband cut down this grey birch tree. It was a nice tree, and I was sad to have to cut it down. The problem was it had gotten so big that once the leaves blossomed it would block a lot of sun in the veggie garden. It's been an issue for a few years. That garden is inside the white picket fence that you can just see on the edge of the photo. As you can also see, it's not like we don't have other trees either.
The hubby was worried the tree might come down in the wrong direction and land on the deck or picket fence.
