catching up...

a friend of ours bought the house next to them...
and it has to be torn down...
but she called and asked me if I wanted this...
what do you think I said???
we will have to wait until it dries up a bit before we can move it...

yesterday, the seed pods started falling off the tree in the side yard along with the fuzzy pods from the cotton wood/ popular...
have you ever used a shop vac in your flower beds?
well, I think I am going to try...

and we have worked the last couple of weekends around here...
just waiting for warmer, dryer weather to start painting the deck and steps...
look at all the pods!
and we just had this all cleaned up...

everything is just waiting for the time to plant the annuals...

and we are talking about paving this area....
we will get the pavers on sale this fall...
cover this area through the winter to kill the grass...
and then start on it after the spring rains are done next year...

so, what are your plans for the outside this year?
we still have fence posts to put in on the other side and a few more panels to make...
in the meanwhile, we need to figure out a place to put the little foot bridge...
maybe I will google it and see what others have done with theirs...
I am thinking a pear tree would look with it...

the sun has peeked out a few times, but its hiding now...
and its still cold, but should be so much nicer tomorrow and the rest of the week...
come on over if you want to play in the dirt this weekend!

Wow it looks an awful lot like spring there. I didn't realize those kind of trees throw so many pods-nope can't say I've ever used the shop-vac in my flower beds.

Your Yard & Gardens are looking wonderful, that wood bridge, would be a great addition....
Hope your staying warm, I had to turn the oven on & dig out my Presto Heat dish. I'm still in my PJ's, just one of those days~

I can't wait to see what you do with your bridge, Tete. What a fun thing to have to play with. Eveything is looking good at your house. I am anxious for a good long spell of good weather- xo Diana

Tete is going to have her own little bridge! how cool is that! I know where ever you put it, it will look great!

What a great gift! That footbridge is perfect for your garden!

Thinking about you,

we talked, several years ago, of putting one of those footbridge things across the ditch, to the mailbox, instead of having to walk on the street to get to it.
