    My wife and I planted 6 ornamental trees yesterday.  Flowering plum, beautiful pink blossoms in the Spring, home to birds, and good for the environment.

    Here's how I reuse wood for my grilling.  Wouldn't want anything to go to waste.  Yard clean-up turned to cooking fuel.  Last years briquets of alder, wild cherry, maple & willow with cedar kindling on the top layer of images.  Easter Lamb on the bottom layer of images.  SORRY, I love being a carnivore if the food is properly prepared.

    It's Spring and throughout our area homeowners are out on their lawn tractors & doing "blow-and-go" jobs.  My wife lets her 2 horses out of their pasture and on the rest of property for about an hour a day while we and the dogs go in the house for lunch.  The "lawn" hasn't had to be mown yet this year, and it's not quite even, but lawn mowers put a lot of pollution.  The horses are great little lawn mowers.
