I really do, every once in a while, some yard work.  At least in the front yard, where I see it all the time.  Not to mention the traffic on Tulare Avenue.  And of course it doesn’t help that, right across the street, “Jesus” is staring right at my yard!

I was going to do a “before and after” thing, but I forgot the “before”!  Trust me, it wasn’t this pretty.

Ok, “pretty” is a bit of a stretch… ” neat”.  “Neat” is a better term.  It wasn’t this neat.  I was going to mow and trim the front, then work on the back yard a bit too.  “Unfortunately” (snicker, yeah, unfortunately) I filled up the yard waste can with the front yard stuff.  The back yard will have to wait.  Say it with me…  aaawwwwww.   A couple of more pictures of the front yard after the jump.  No pictures of the back yard.  They’re much to embarrassing.

Jesus, right across the street, constantly keeping an eye on me.  He’s always hanging around, and the design of this thing is just a bit morbid, don’t you think?

Thank goodness the weather went totally nuts, the high pressure system that usually parks itself off the southern California coast doesn’t seem to be in it’s usual place, and a marine “incursion” has brought our temperatures from 105 (313.5K) 48 hours ago to a high today of 77 F.  (298K)  If I had a bigger yard waste can, I might have gotten more done.  Might. Maybe. (the dark splotches on the driveway in front of the car are “cherries”.  My “fruitless” cherry tree, every other year, tries to make cherries.  Even the crows don’t like them.)
