Sophie stands guard as I work in the yard.
That's me over by the gate, digging up sod so I can put in flagstones. Have to go to Home Despot for some sand to level them. I'll take some pictures when it's finished.
Those bushes outside the window, which I thought were just, well, ordinary shrubs, turned out to be lilacs! They have smaller leaves than I am used to in a lilac. They're about to bloom. Pics will come of those, too. Later.
