After pruning some overgrown trees and bushes, we started mulching them a few weeks ago. Unfortunately, we found that fresh branches do not mulch as well as dried ones, so today was the day to continue the task.
My husband is on holidays, so it’s good to have his help. Before we started though, he noticed that the sliding door to the back yard was sticking, so suddenly it was off its tracks to be adjusted. Then of course I decided that was a perfect opportunity to clean the glass inside and out. The sun was shining, which encouraged me. The door sits surrounded by two other colonial windows, so it wasn’t a quick and easy task, but once started you have to finish it – dusty, dirty windows no more.
At least he continued mulching and doing a little weeding while I finished the windows. There’s still a pile of branches to attend to, but they can wait until next time.
