We've just bought a house. I'm exhausted, but impatient to get the moving and settling in done so I can dirty my hands in the garden, rearrange flower beds and clean out the backyard shed. It's full of tools and junk; I'm sure half of it's useful but I want to go through it all and get some space useful (and see what yard tools I won't have to buy- maybe there's a rake or garden trowel buried in all that stuff). I have plans for growing vegetables. The trees in front yard are in gorgeous white blossom right now. They look really familiar but I don't know what kind they are. White. Not dogwood. Cherry?
