Don't know if you can spot the yellow in the above picture but there was a "diamond in the rough" on all that rock and dirt. There is a little yellow daffodil that came up.
|Sorry for poor picture quality. The surrounding area focused great but the flower didn't. :(|
A backhoe and a dump truck can work miracles.
Now I said I wanted to show you how it looked after they did their thing but then I realized that I didn't take any after pictures. To tell the truth, it still looks ugly. That is because we still need to bring in some topsoil and plant grass seed. I did buy the grass seed at Sam's but am still waiting for the topsoil to be spread nice and level before I spread the seed. I will have to do an update later. We had to stop because of the above mentioned cold, snowy, wet weather we were having. :( Hopefully, it will get worked on again soon.
Now you know how it is when a tractor type vehicle comes to work and you have a son. Well, school went out the window for a little bit because my son (and my daughter) wanted to watch the men work.

So that is some of what's been going on outside. I have more but I think it will have to go in another post as this is getting lengthy. So, what has been happening outdoors in your neck of the woods? Let me know what projects you have going to usher in the spring.
Hope everyone has a great rest of the week! So until next time...
