Remember that long list of outdoor chores I gave myself last Saturday? Let me remind you…click here. Well, the weather was crummy, rain, drizzle, wind, sun, rain, drizzle, wind, sun. You get the picture. But I did get sections of the yard weeded. Case in point…..the picture on the right is much better than the picture on the left. In fact, I’ll just take you on a little stroll…..
This place along the fence line gets so much water I am thinking of just filling it with bunches of rock and lots of pots. I do like to feed the birds. Did you know if you microwave the bird seed for a few minutes before filling the birdfeeders it will prevent it from germinating? Oh, and notice the pot. It still needs cleaning but so do others. 🙂
The lawns are looking better after such a wet winter.
Don’t ya just love the smell of green grass?
We didn’t bring the lawn furniture out, too wet still. I didn’t plant the lilies, in fact, I didn’t get any planting done. I’m telling you too much weeding. So instead I did take a few pictures. It’s a work in progress!
The gully is on the east side of our house. When we moved in the trees were almost next to the house. As you can see, we’ve (well mu hubby and son) have slowly cut them back.
As you can see, some of the trees are REALLY tall. When it’s really windy out you can hear them sway. I purposely stacked these two pictures on one another so you could see how REALLY tall these trees are. I’m going to try and paint some birdhouses this weekend. I’d love to hang them on these REALLY big tall trees!
This is the east side of the house and where I wanted to plant my hydrangeas but have not done yet.
Here’s one of my favorites, hostas. There are so many different varieties,.
The rhodies are in bloom….
and the peonies are almost ready to pop….
Now I just need to finish my weeding, get the rock and bark down and plant some pots. What are you doing in your yard?
