On the agenda for today was to do some mowing in the backyard. I've tried to do things with the backyard ever since I moved to Athens in 2009 with little success which I'm guessing is due to all of the shade. But if all I have to do with it is mow it a couple of times per year, I'm fine with that.
Not all is lost, however. The Japanese Boxwood bushes I planted in 2012 have thrived and look great.
