The Mulch Arrives!

Thirty yards of mulch arrived,
a vineyard-blend...
filling the walkway in front of our house...
and we begin to shovel...

That is not a cloud of dust,
but steam rising from the heat of the mulch...

the pile on the walkway shrinks
and the yard fills, the cardboard covered...

as Lynnette and Michelle oversee the project...

At last all of the mulch is smoothed out
and ready to receive the rain
that will make the transformation of the soil,
preparing it for planting and the meadow to come...
