DAY 28: Today is St. Patty’s day, after school my daughter and I will be heading to Bonney Lake McDonald’s for their famous Shamrock Shake! Today, people celebrate the day with parades, wearing of the green, and drinking beer. One reason St. Patrick’s Day might have become so popular is that it takes place just a few days before the first day of spring. One might say it has become the first green of spring. Enjoy your day,  I sure hope you are wearing green or I will pinch you! Live Life, Be Well…Namaste! Krisy Clayton~REALTOR 253-576-4304, krisy@windermere.com

365 Things to do in Bonney Lake Day 18: Today is the day to work in the yard here in  Bonney Lake, prune some of those tree’s and shrubs that are looking so sad. 4 easy steps below. If I am out in my yard working today, then you can too. 1. Always remove the three Ds: The dead, diseased or damaged. 2. Be sure to aim for an open, vase-shaped form by removing branches that grow inward toward the center of the rose. This open, outward facing shape is the same framework you want to aim for when pruning fruit trees. 3. Cut with hand pruners for skinny branches but use big loppers for thick canes and try to cut just above an outward facing eye or growth bud. Pruning always stimulates growth so wherever you make a cut, that is where the next sprout of new growth will be. 4. Make your cuts sli...
