Garden Bugs

As the temps climbed into the low 60's I found that the garden bugs were back out and I've been bitten. It started out as just surveying the sprouting bulbs but soon I had a leaf rake in my hand. It's amazing how much stuff the snow leaves behind in the yard but a quick comb through and the grass really spruced up.
I hope the salt trucks didn't destroy the grass between the street and sidewalk out front. You know how your car is covered with that nasty layer of white powder? The grass is just the same. Literal salt clouds would billow up as I raked through. I'm sure I looked like Pigpen from Peanuts.
