I love the lichen on this small tree.
We decided that this Summer the boys were not going to do any weekend sport so that we can spend more time at home on the yard, and that is what we did on Saturday 4 huge loads of green waste to the dump later we managed to clear out down one side of the backyard. I love living on an acre but every job always seems to be on a grand scale. Now we have only the front yard to do, which will take 2 - 3 weekends approx.
I did manage to find while cleaning up 6 tennis balls, 3 footballs, 1 baseball, 1 cricket ball, numerous golf balls, a ping pong ball and numerous other small toys that the boys grew out of a long time ago, thankfully we didn't find any snakes although we had a scare but it was only a lizard.
