    showed up across the street this last week.

    And I should probably call my crew - a lot of grass clumps are a good five inches up. Need to figure out some meaningful thing to say to make them leave the cuttings, especially for the first mow. They get used to it later, but I want all the gingko, oak, and willow leaves they'll pick up this time.

    Anemone blanda, winter aconite going strong here, and I pruned the Concord grape today - luckily no sign of budbreak. This next ten days will be the moment to grub up the buttercups that are vigorously encroaching on the good plants; after that it's hard to get them without harming the others.

    Time to prune the pie-cherry tree too . . .
