It's Spring and we've decided that we really need to start thinking about doing some landscaping. The last three years, everything has been about getting the house and barn built, and while there is still work to be done there, it's time to try to get the rest of the place looking a little better. Emma and Tessa have very graciously volunteered to help out with the lawn.
Emma: "It's a terrible lot of work but someone has to do it....
"Well Em, I think we should pull all this scrubby stuff away from the wall and plant some flowers along it, a friend gave me some iris'. What do you think?"
"I can't for the life of me see why...all that stuff tastes really yummy just the way it is. I can't imagine a bunch of flowers are going to taste any better. And besides, I can't use a bunch of dumb flowers to scratch my belly and why would you care that you can't see the stone wall...definitely a waste of effort..."
"You do have a point there at least. That tree will taste much better once you get rid of all that dry, nasty stuff. It will also be much easier to get at the nice, chewy bark without all that junk in the way. You'd better put that camera away and get down here and get to work. I'm doing my job after all..."
*sigh* Nope, Emma and I just don't see eye-to-eye on this landscaping stuff. Tanner, on the other hand, seems to be on my side.
Tanner: "Yup, you need to get rid of all that brush. Flower beds are much more comfortable to lie in after all...."
