On Saturday I went to Arbor Day and went around tables about recycling and the environment and planting trees.

Today gardeners are here with blowers which I hate and a chain saw which scares me.  Our back yard is a wild overgrown place.  The gardeners will tame it and clean out the "duff" aka fallen bits of leaves and cedar needles.  We want a yard where the kids can run around and play without pricking themselves and where C and I can sit without sneezing.  We're both quite allergic to tree pollen.   But right now  I feel sad that the huge vines of jasmine that cover our fence are being torn down.

Oh I would be upset about the jasmine, too. That's my very favorite.

There are gardeners who don't "mow and blow".

My finance, for example.

Yeah "mow and blow" is no good, though we had so much duff that we needed a blower.

Congrats on your engagement!

Thank you. I'm a lucky smitten boy.
