Between the Rain Storms

More rain is on the way, but today was nice, a little cloudy, a little cool in the 50s, but pleasant outside.

I cut the mulch area around the new Katsura and the pear tree to be a little wider and neater, and split a 1 cu. foot bag of compost on them.  Then I did the same with one of the willows (still need to do the other two).  The willow took a full bag of compost (1 cu. ft.)

I added two cu. feet of compost to the front walk bed.  Boy does that "neaten" it up.. looks so nice now.  Tulips and onions are poking up.

Spent the better part of the morning watching Olmstead's cottonwood being dismantled and taken down.  It's completely gone now.
