RE: id help please< garden workout

Hey - I started pruning and doing heavier work on Feb. 8th and I'm still
getting sore. Of course I was out back w/ hedge clippers (manual) trying
to whack down the two foot high white clover. John (neighbor) was coming
over w/ his weed eater and I had to find the hose in there before he got
happy w/ that thing. Too wet to mow. Still. But it looks better. I
couldn't have Jesse seeing it like it was this coming weekend. (Ya-Ya
function) Kept expecting ol' Tarzan and Cheetah to show up back there.
