Ok, I've tried to read/post lately, but spring is in the air!
The undergrowth in the back part of the woods is growing strong!! Here are those flowers that I had posted before just popping up everywhere in the back.
Pretty flower, has a bulb, but still no name.
Part of the walk trail we have been working on. There is also a 30+foot tree that fell over out there that we still need to cut up for firewood. It is soooo huge, but it is an old oak tree which will make really good firewood.
See this mess here? I have been working on it too. We have cut down quite a few scraggly trees, and some little pines that I felt were too close to the house.
This is the spot where my garden house aka old shed will be going. I have had to move plants from that opening so hubby could take the tractor to it. Look at that mess!! My poor old bones ache just from looking at it!
This is the view the garden shed will have once in place. I have started planting things on that side, and there is a dahlia bed in there too.
I never took these paper lanterns down last year. They have battery operated lights to them so we used them quite a bit. However, after this past winter they are past their prime. Plus two of them have bird nests in them!!
You can see part of the wood pile hubby has started for his "barn". Actually I call the old one his "doggy house", and my family in Germany got a kick out of that one! Once it's done it will be his new and improved doggy house! This grassy area makes a great place to play badminton or croquet.
Underneath the gazebo about a year ago we added these cement stones from one of those molded forms. It took us about four days doing a row each night, and I placed different leaves on each form, even the small ones. It gives it a different look.
I got out of storage the gazebo set, and scrubbed it down. Has anyone ever tried washing those type cushions? New ones are sooo expensive, and these are still like new. However, I do want to clean them up a bit, and thought of taking them to one of those laundry places. I scrubbed the concrete down too!!
Cute little candle holders that I found for $1 each at Big Lots. Oh, and you can't forget the mosquito repellent. That is a must for around here!!!
So, that is just some outside things that have been done. Inside I have been going to town too! Washing windows, curtains, cleaning cabinets, and there is still more to be done!! Plus I am having a jewelry party soon, and that is a big motivation on my part to get into the spring cleaning mode! Oh! speaking of jewelry party.....I'll be doing a post soon on that! I see a giveaway in this blogs future!!
