got a lot done today and a nap after supper...

well, some of us got a lot done today...
Lester and Hermie are brothers...
who might need a set of bunk beds...

DH had to work today so Craig and I worked on the island first thing this morning...

the knock out roses are doing really well this year...

it got up in the 90s here today and no rain...

so it was nice to work in the shade...
and there was a nice breeze...

we started out with this...
and we had been watering...
but it was rock hard and it took awhile longer than I thought it would to work up...

fall clematis...

we moved things out and worked while it was cooler out...

and this is how it progressed...

we even moved the bird bath over here today...

and I got some shots in while I was taking my breaks...

looking better...

Charlie loves it outside...

and I told Craig not to touch a thing here...
I liked my weeds...

we were about to get done with this area...
so Craig ran the hose out to me so I could water and fill the bird bath...

and before I could turn the hose on...
someone claimed squatters rights...
one squirt changed his mind on that...

then we headed for the south side yard...
and I worked on pots...

and Craig finished the wash tub...

and we talked and worked...
and worked and talked...

and we cleaned up around the tree and pulled weeds...
and picked up those crazy helicopters that are driving me nuts...

and then we watered what we had planted...

 by that time, it was time for lunch...
1:30, so way past for us...

but we did good today...
and we worked inside and made supper...
Craig and I even made a grocery store run to our store here in town...

my new bunny from Walmart...
$13...
and he is cute...

DH came home pupt and I didn't get my nap in at all today...
so after supper...
we all laid down and slept about an hour and a half...
got up, went out and finished the watering and I de- treed the veggie garden and planted flowers where the bird bath had been and then watered that...
went for a walk while Craig finished watering around the deck and shed...
and then we started a fire and sat out there most of the evening...
we roasted marshmallows and hot dogs...
and had a good night...
hope you had a good day with friends or family...
and you got to be outside...
it was a very good day...
;0)

smile when you can...
and help someone out this weekend...
it will make your heart sing...

Wow- Your gardens are so beautiful, Tete. A real labor of love and you have put a lot of time and effort into making your yard beautiful and it really shows. Love your cute bunny, too.

I didn't get a single thing done outside today- hoping I can tomorrow. xo Diana

Tete your gardens and flowers are just beautiful plus it's a nice thing that the whole family does together-love the pictures.

Wow, Tete everything is looking so very pretty. I laughed about the cats, they are characters. You and your son sure did a lot of work today. I planted and pulled weeds and trimmed things for 1 1/2 hours and I was wore out. Hope we do not have rain all week, like the paper says. Blessings dear friend, xoxo,Susie
