In my humblest opinion, of course.  Also, some photos of stuff growing in my yard that I didn’t plant.

I like yard work.  I really do.  I like growing plants and tending to the garden.  That was before we moved into a corner lot.  Now, I have more tree lawn than I had total yard back at the old house.  I still like yard work, but now, there is so damn much yard to work.  And a whole bunch of flower beds I have to take care of that I didn’t plant.  I have a general plan of attack, but that is for another post.

For now, here’s a few shots of things growing in my yard that I kinda like, before they fade away, or the vermin deer eat.

I think these are Azaleas.

To the best of my knowledge, these “are some kind of Lily.”

And here is the herb garden I planted.  Some Rosemary, Basil, and Italian Flat Leaf Parsley.

As you can guess from the last photo, I also get to rip out countless unwanted Maple trees, thanks to the metric shit-ton of seeds a neighbor’s tree is constantly dropping.

But I digress.

The purpose of this post was to announce what I think is the most important tool for yard work, so here ya go:

Hydration is important.  Energy is important.  When you have a big yard like mine, that equates to a lot of energy and hydration.  Nothing like a half-gallon of Mountain Dew to wet you whistle and give you the energy to power through the day.  And the evening.  And most of the night.  Probably some the day after.

You get the picture.
