First yard work of 2020

I usually don't have any yard work until early March but this fall/winter has been unusually wet and warm so today I had to head to the Home Depot to buy three bags of ground cover to spread across some ground that is eroding away due to all the rain and causing the dogs to come inside with muddy feet.

This is also the first time this year I've had to use my antique wheelbarrow. At our last house, we had a neighbor offer it to me after she got a new one. I have no idea how old this is but I keep spray painting it every few years and it keeps going so I will keep using it until it gives up.

You can tell this tire is quite old. How? It has "Made in U.S.A." on it.

At least I'm not weed eating or, even worse, mowing yet but if this weather doesn't change soon, the mower will be out early this year.

I also had to pull some weeds at the end of the driveway where I discovered a few flowers that normally pop up in spring have already bloomed out.
