April 1 is about the time every year that I start noticing all of the things wrong with my yard ... the weeds in the flower beds, the bare spot in the yard, the holes where my dog has gone foraging for critters. So every April I start bookmarking and pinning inspiration on how I'm going to fix these problems once and for all (never happens).
