As we sat drinking coffee on the front porch early Sunday morning, I decided our yard light needed some company. After a trip to Menard's, we came up with this grouping. I like it!!
Shucks!! I just realized that Lon and I won't be able to give each other rides around the yard in this wheelbarrow anymore. Bummer!
I planted impatiens around this tree in the back yard and around another tree in the front yard. After a few weeks, these plants with their red blossoms will be pushing and shoving each other and overflowing the sides of the planter. I can't wait!
Uh, oh!! These fellows and all their buddies are going to get mighty thirsty during the next several months. Something tells me I'll be toting a hose and a watering can to all four corners of the yard on a regular basis. That's a must if I want to keep all of our flowers alive and thriving.
I put a fresh coat of red paint on this cardinal yesterday. The harsh winter weather and the sun had faded him to a pale purple color, totally uncharacteristic of a vibrant cardinal.
The potted plants below add life and vibrant color to the table on our screen porch.Do YOU take time to play in YOUR yard? If not, I suggest you try it. It's great for the soul.
