mulberries...

so many around here hate these trees...
but I love them...
we have two...
they feed the birds...
and if they plant more...
that's fine with me...

I got up so late this morning...
it was after 8...
but we finally got around and went to town...
Dollar Tree, to see what was new and pick up a few things that I needed...
and then we went to Rural King...
the best plant and garden place around here...
and I found so many things that I would like to have in my yard...
I did pick up a yellow kids hoe...
so I can hoe sitting down...
grabbed a nice pair of flip flops for 25% off...
chocolate covered peanuts for DH...
begonias and coleus...
just one four pack of each...
I saw roses and trees and bushes...
gazing balls and trellises...
bird feeders and garden furniture...
got dog biscuits instead...
I had so much fun just looking at all the "new" things to me...
we went up one aisle and down another...
it was raining this morning...
not enough to do a lot of good, but enough to keep us from doing any yard work...
we got ice cream on the way out of town again...
49 cents is hard to beat...
and we ate lunch when we got home...
mower guy came this afternoon and got the yard done...
so it looks nice again...
trash is out to the road...
DH has one more day off and Craig has to work tomorrow...
I have to call the doctor in the morning...
my yeast infection is coming back...
started on the medicine that was left in the bottle from the first time...
hope he just calls in another perscription and I don't have to go back in...

you all have a great night...
and a fun day tomorrow...

Hi Tete Sweetie...
Such a beautiful share today. I love reading about what you are up to, where you went, what you did. So much fun to travel along with.

We too, have 2 mulberry trees. We had so many dropping year after year, and it is such a mess at some points in cleaning it all up, this year, I came up with an idea, we placed plastic tarps under the trees, and each evening we just swept up the mulberries and tossed them in a bag. Our trees have grown at such a fast rate, the birds can't eat them fast enough. Ours have all emptied now, and it is lovely for that part of the season to be over, and be able to enjoy the shade of the trees.

I bought one of those little kids rakes for cleaning out under the rose bushes, as a large one is just to harsh for them, and it saves the thorn pokes on my hands and arms. I love those little rakes, so helpful.

No rain here, but lots of fires still going on throughout the state. A very dry time for us here in the desert.

Ooh those 49 cent ice cream cones sound SO yummy. I hope you had a lick for me too.

Have a beautiful week sweet friend. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

Oh, man! We had mulberry trees & the birds made such a mess & were so 'drunk' that we took them down. The birds couldn't even FLY straight ... what a sight they were.

That 49 cent ice cream cone is going to sound REALLY GOOD tomorrow for the rest of the week ... near 100s all week.

Have a beautiful day, my friend.
Huggers,
Marydon
