mister irish is reading his papers . . .
i mowed the yard yesterday . . .
by the way, great purchase, i love my new mower/tractor
for me it's the little things . . .
reading the paper, not so much,
walking around the yard, weeding, snipping, tweaking,
my kind of day
today . . . "let me be aware of the treasure you are"
get ready for photo overload
this also helps me keep track of my plantings from year to year
thank you before hand
cone flowers ready to bloom
why hibiscus does well in our shady space i haven't a clue
fake bunnies and real bunnies live here
annabelle hydrangeas bloom in every corner
huge norway spruce was removed last year,
roots and stump gone,
getting ready to extend the border,
reline the brick,
replace the sod into this bare spot
i love to do projects like this . . . really!
many varieties of grasses
ferns and moss
snow on the mountain
yellow finch high in the tree
snickers watching . . .
she likes her "peeps" sitting down reading papers, writing posts
then she knows it is a stay at home day
front yard . . . treasured hemlock tree,
i treat it tenderly, twenty five years old
lots of boston ivy
love how the hemlock branches droop and drape
yellow flowers are finished blooming, not sure of their name,
also a mix of poppies, pine here
crocosmia corner, brought here from ireland,
almost ready to bloom, bright orange/red flower
white pine, michigan tree, several in yard,
I brought saplings in from the woods behind the house
many years ago and planted them throughout the yard . . .
now these pines are massive
the birdies love the bird baths
bitter sweet vine, wrapped around a very old oak tree
bamboo wind chimes make a beautiful sound on a breezy day
that is it
i am doing this post on the porch
as i was sitting here a baby bunny was in the grassy area of the yard, nibbling away
i tried to get a picture without much luck
so you get a "flip flop" view from the porch
love and peace
april, nineteen ninety
sorry about all the pictures sitting on the left
with the words centered
I tried to correct
maybe it is a message for me
