Instead of hauling our pile of scraps from pruning to the dump, we decided to rent a wood chipper and reuse the scraps as mulch for around our roses. This seemed like a fairly simple task in theory. It was much more difficult that we anticipated, but we were able to get through our entire pile. It didn't help that it was 93 degrees today.
I can see our side yard again. And thank goodness because we have our first irrigation of the season tomorrow night. Our yard is dying for water, literally. We missed our first opportunity for irrigation. Our trees really need a good watering.
Josh's uncle gave us a nice table that belonged to Josh's Grandma. We purchased two comfy chairs and placed it on the east, shady side of the house. It has been nice to have another place to sit and relax.
The east sideyard roses are looking lovely and blooming like crazy. Since they were the first to be pruned, they have been the first to bloom.
Our pomegranate tree started to bloom yesterday. The blooms are a bright orange-red. Very pretty!
Sadly, the wisteria has lost most of its blooms. It came and went in the blink of an eye. We'll look forward to seeing those blooms again next year.
