Finally had a day off and some decent weather to get out and do a little clean up. I raked out all the dead leaves, cut back a few things and pulled out lots of chickweed. A few chionodoxa are popping up along with the fresh new leaves of some perennials. Still more to do, but I worked from late afternoon until dark - sweeping up in the streetlight. I look a little paraplegic with my legs outstretched, but it's easier on my knees.
