Saved: Part II.

Today was my last day "off" before I start work full-time on Monday. I spent the afternoon gardening and despite taking a Claritan, my allergies went bananas. My eyes are red and swollen and itchy and watery. But my garden, looks great.
Before (Front Walkway):

I'm surprised the cedar bushes didn't drop dead from the other bushes encroaching on their space and basically strangling them. I cut one down to nothing and trimmed everything else back so that the walk way is completely clear. Of course, I forgot to take a "before" picture of the front of the house, but picture it all crazy and overgrown and you'll be super impressed.
After filling 4 paper gardening bags I topped up the front beds with mulch. I'm please to say that the mulch pile is GONE. And my yard has that fresh cedar smell I love so much. Now, where's that Benadryl??
