Yard work & Gopher woes... already!

I am unbelievably happy to be outside playing in the dirt again!

Today was bright, shiny and perfectly cool...and time to start raking up.  My herb garden melts out first, so that's where I start...
Pruning, trimming, and cleaning out the bed.

While cleaning up, I noticed that the Lilac bush I planted last Summer was leaning over. 
Argggh... A damn gopher has constructed an new "Super Highway" through the bed and the Lilac bush happens to be collateral damage!
The bush is budded out and has new shoots,
however, has taken a huge blow to the root system!
I'm hoping that I can save it....Looks like the battle with the gophers has began early this year!
