Happy Gardening season is here!!!

I didn't have any cute flowers on hand to put in this glove so this will do until I get to the garden place. I saw this in a magazine, you get in inexpensive glove, (I paid $1.99 for this pair), cover with a hardener, ie, Mod Podge, put a plastic cup inside while it dries to keep the shape, put in some gromets, a rope/string for hanging and Voila!!!

Stop Waiting

Have you heard of the Daffodil Principle?
It's all about NOT living in regret and goes like this:
Stop waiting....
Until your car or home is paid off
Until you get a new car or home
Until your kids leave the house
Until you go back to school
Until you finish school
Until you clean the house
Until you organize the garage
Until you clean off your desk
Until you lose 10 lbs.
Until you gain 10 lbs.
Until you get married
Until you get a divorce
Until you have kids
Until the kids go to school
Until you retire
Until summer
Until spring
Until winter
Until fall Until you die...
There is no better time than right now to be happy.

Help I forgot what I planted

I know this is a purple ball shaped flower I can't remember the name

I was in his way sitting on the steps where he lives

Bird baths are a hit

I never thought I would see them used. Last year I never saw once bird in the old one, so I got a new one and now they are in both of them all the time

So far this is what has started in our yard this year

nope here is the link to my facebook

Blog link to face book?

Racing again!

I spent most of my day yesterday, sitting, sitting and more sitting, waiting for his races. I got there just in time for the first one but had to wait probably 4 hours total for the second race. I go out for lunch and some shopping at Ocean state and picked up some goodies and came back in time to wait only 2 hours. He got 10th place the first race and I am not sure about 2nd, I think it was 12th, I left before they posted the results

Yard Work is never done!

The bulbs are popping up too

The seedlings are coming along!!! Maybe I am doing something right.

Last night I moved about 10 loads of dirt and these rocks from one garden to the fire pit to make it bigger. Ugh

For the feathered friends

got one side filled in today

The bike is now white, it needed a change I thought

I stained the deck today and my cat

I didn't know he was under there when I rolled on the first pass, so stain went on his head and I stained the chairs, oops, I hope no one notices....

My new toy from Tractor Supply
