Today we went to the library to get more books and sign up for the summer reading program. We got a library tote bag and sheets to log our reading. There are drawings for a chromebook, a kindle fire, and various drawings for $50 visa cards. DD is very lucky in drawings, so I hope one of us wins something.
I left a message for the tree service to call me back for estimates for removing a tree and all of my landscaping in the front yard. I checked the hedges for baby birds and nests. I found two empty laying nests, so I am trying to get the foliage out early so the birds can start building their permanent homes again. I hate to displace them, but the hedges are over a half century old:it is time. I am my own contractor, so I will then get bids on concrete finishers for the porch,driveway and sidewalk.

    What about rejuvenation pruning for the hedges? Are they too old for that? I hope the projects aren't stressful for you, but I know that that the new look will be very pleasing.

    I took out a hedge that was beside a retaining wall myself. Talk about a pain trying to get the roots out! We had to have the retaining wall replaced after a huge blizzard and ice storm following the blizzard. The wall bowed and was only feet from the side of the neighbor's house. We got a loan from a credit union that my husband belonged to and got it taken care of.

    It sounds like you take good care of your property and now that you are not responsible for others, it is a good time to make your dreams come true.
