I returned home from a 5 day road trip to get my daughter home from college for the summer greeted by the jungle that is my yard. The mostly-cool weather this area has been having, combined with the alternating sunny and rainy days, has been a gift to the lawn and the weeds. Yesterday I attacked the weeds with gusto via my electric trimmer. There is nothing quite like the level of satisfaction of blowing through weeds with a yard power tool.

As always this time of year feels like time ripe with opportunity for gardening. In a month it will feel like a burden. 😂
