Veggies In The Ground!

One long week of working the beds clean,
and getting the seeds (and plants) in the ground.
Now for a good "watering in" to help the seeds germinate.

Phase One Complete

Well, got all 10 of the beds laid out, and turned over.
Next will be one more tilling of each, and then the planting!

To The Gardening!

The time has arrived when my thoughts can turn to dirt!
The garden dirt, that is!
Just as years past, I will have 10 beds (2 in each row).
Each bed will be approximately 30 feet x 4 feet.
Today was DAY# 1... laying out the beds.

It's A "Done Deal"

The big day arrived and all went superb.
Here the Mrs. and I are with granddaughter, Katy,
and her new husband, Paul.
Now comes the "happy ever after" part.
(And that old gazebo cleaned up pretty good, don't you think?)

.... and lights were hung inside the tent.
Tomorrow is here already!

Wedding = Chores!

With the wedding here at the house coming up,
there were a thousand things that the Mrs. and I felt needed to be done.
Now that we're down to the wire, the list has narrowed dramatically!
 (some things completed, some re-prioritized)
Good thing I had this little "helper" working with me!

All Work... And No Play

Sorry I haven't been on much lately.  I've been busy.
Got a wedding here at the house in 8 days!
One big project that's been very demanding was tearing off
the back deck, and also replacing the back steps.
This picture was a few days ago when I got those rebuilt.
Spent all of today building the handrails... well, and also moving some of the old lumber from the deck.
Anyway, finally see the finishing point coming... maybe this weekend... on this major project.
Once everything is built, PAINTING.  And then setting out a few bushes, and cutting the grass.

Spring Has Sprung!

Guess it's official here in the South. Spring has sprung!
Easter came early, and brought our Spring with it.
Dogwoods and Red Bud trees blooming.  Flowers everywhere!
And now, just a week (or so) later, our Azaleas have opened.
And they are gorgeous!!  Enjoying every minute of it!!
