Last weekend I took a look outside my front door and was shocked at how badly the walkway was overgrown.
Yesterday afternoon I finally did something about it.
It's not a perfect job, but the birds seem to like it better. It's as good a job as I could do for now. There are more important things to do than getting rid of every bit of bad growth from between the paving stones. I have a whole backyard full of different kinds of grasses that are growing so quickly they're almost over my head. It's quite annoying for the local cats who have to tromp through it.
And I don't know what I'm going to do about it, unless I can figure out whether the lawnmower left here by the previous tenant is capable of doing the job. I don't have any confidence in my wimpy little weed trimmer (which needs re-stringing anyway). If it doesn't rain this weekend, I might just go out there and start yanking stuff out of the ground. It couldn't look any worse.
