More on the Yard
If you are not a Star Wars fan
the this will go right over your
I was scrolling through my pics
and ran across a couple more
I stated that I hope my neighbors don't
do an intervention on me
and my paints.....
course I think they would come
closer to an intervention on
me gardening in the nude!!!
Wonder how this even became a
thing for May 5th?
Wow.....lets not even go there,
I think I will stick to clothes in the
I picked up the metal type thingy
at Goodwill a few yrs ago. I love
it in the garden. I have a ground
cover like plant growing out of
it. The winter took its toll on some of
my plants so I lost most of this plant.
These things - no clue on the name grow
tall and bloom purple in the summer months.
They spread fast also. So they
are all over the flowerbed.
Love my rusty old bird. This was
purchased a few yrs ago from a
friend of Chris', he is an amazing metal
artist. You can read about the
day we went to visit Major here~
Planted some Rosemary.
I took up some rocks around my
hydrangea bushes since the grass
and weeds had taken over and decided
to just start cutting around the
bushes. That leaving me
with a lot of flat rocks.
I decided I wanted to try my
hand at a rock garden.
So I hauled the rocks to the
front of the house in my wagon and
here is the end result.
I had also noticed this fern growning
next to my deck. Not a clue
where it came from but I
took it up and put it on the
I live in a zero lot line ( a home that has
another home attached to one side of
it). It is a townhome, I have a long backyard
and a smaller front. No side yard cause the
neighbors home is on one side and
my driveway is on the other.
Does make it a tad harder to have
a yard full of plants since most
people usually have to side yards.
But I make do.
The cool thing is I don't live in
a neighborhood with all the homes
being zero lot lines, I have two homes
on each side of our unit, plus there is
only four of these units on
my street, sitting between single
Years ago I would always share
my plants with my neighbor.
This iris being one. Love this color.
This is a Clematis.
It should be busting out in bloom
HAHA.....was sitting here on the deck and I see
movement in the yard. Usually if it is a squirrel
I will tell Dakota and he will want off
the deck to chase.....
He spotted the movement at the same
time I did, I guess thinking
it was as squirrel he wanted out....
he chased and I am not sure when
he would have done it he had caught
cause this was a ground hog as big as
him! haha....Only the
1st time I have seen it this yr...
and only two times last yr. Not sure
where it came from!
And one last message on this post...
If you have not noticed in the time you
have been reading my blog let me throw
this info out at you.....
if anything can go wrong with the body
that is old and out of normal it will
happen to me.
First I suffer from Fibromyalgia.
Which if you are not aware of this
you might want to jump on the
net and read up on it.
I had the issue with the silly
blood blister on my pinky that
got HUGE and out of wack which
required a visit to the doc to have it
I had an iris problem with my left
eye where I could not even handle
room light to enter that iris.
Oh I could go on and on....but
I will leave you with this.
This is what happens to my skin
when certain pollen
settles on it.
Hard to see I know but this is
a rash of raised bumps....and
Once they hit my skin showering
does not good, the damage is done.
And talk about how uncomfortable
it is to have it settle in your hair....
Leaving you with that thought....
enjoy your day!
With that, I hope you do not suffer
with crap like this....
Have a great day!
