weeding in the afternoon...

I almost hated pulling this grass in front of the chippy old door...
reminds me of home on the farm...
there were always weeds around the barns and out buildings...

but they came out today...

this is a new, darker purple one...

and the yellow really glows like that in the sun...

and the iris are doing so good this year...

we stuck these little bulbs in here and there and they are just popping up every where...

so here is the main hired hand in progress...

as I sat here and pulled the grass...

had to get a couple shots before they were gone...
doesn't that say country to you?

these are going to be dark ones, too...

just pretty...
and its their first season here...

the first white one that bloomed is beginning to fade...

 
one of my favorite places in the yard...

and the weeds pile up fast...

soon to be...





ok, these are just fun...
Craig found them at a rummage sale and we painted them one color...
and they spin well...

almost finished...
and then he grabbed the camera...

for another senior moment...

the finished product...
the mulch is yet to come...
but I think we are about ready...

just wait until you see what I drug home from our walk tonight...
later...
