The celebration towels came out of the dryer!
They're all washed, pressed, and cut apart!
In other news, the yard has been coming along nicely. I spent some time working on the two cherry trees and the rose bushes out in the backyard.
Everything is just so bushy and overgrown. I know it's the wrong season to prune some trees, but this is the only time I have to do it! The last thing this area needs is the cleanup of those leaves, now that I can reach them.
I also worked on getting all the weeds picked at the property line. Thanks to the help from my dad, I could have never accomplished this much in one morning! It looks so much better!
Next weekend, not only do I need to get the rest of the leaves under control, but I also want to get started on the garden beds and maybe trim some dead branches from a few trees around the house.
While I was out, I noticed a lot of fruit growth already on some of the trees!
The half-peach tree is chugging away on those peaches. I can't believe it came back to life! It was almost dead when we moved into the house 2 years ago. I wish our other peach tree would have survived.
And I just can't believe how many roses are on our bushes! They aren't looking as good as they were a few days ago, but this is the most I've ever seen on it!
I re-discovered a forgotten rosebush deep down in our yard. It looks so pretty, too! I forget it's down there and I always miss out on the prettiest pink roses. There are so many this year!! I hope that's a good sign and means our fruit trees will be very productive this year!
