Trying To Make Pretty

Leave a comment

Once a year, for about a week or two, this tree is pretty.  It must just be putting on airs for the bees, because the rest of the year it’s an ugly purple mess.  It’s a fruitless cherry tree, but apparently it’s not quite sure how that works, because every two years it tries to put out a crop of cherries.  They don’t look very tasty, and even the birds don’t seem interested in eating them.  I’ve threatened to cut it down, several times.

I Really Do… No, Really, I Do. Honest.

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.
