My first day of yard work: spring clean-up. I trim out dead and
damaged branches, pick up debris, cut out old stalks from the
raspberry patch. I get my first blister of the season (raking
always does that to me). I clean out the porch, put out the porch
furniture and clean it, too.

The yews in front are sending out thick, yellow pollen.
New plants are pushing up from below

At about 5pm a fierce wind blew in. It’s still blowing now, but no rain.
