Thanks for stopping in ..I was just thinking...
(shhh..don't say it! :)
I love the country, but I know now that I will never live there. Of course anything can happen in this life so who knows.
In the meantime, I love our yard. A little rain worked miracles! The weather has been so nice and I've felt so good that I've been out there fiddling with the flower beds..sneaking a bit of water for the new grass seed. More rain expected a couple of days this week.
We spend a lot of time on the patio as well.
Notice the piled stones and bricks on the umbrella stand? We have had some high winds and have more than once found the umbrella's in the neighbor's yards..and one is broken.
We don't have the rolling hills that I would love to see, but it's a nice yard and Mele' had lots of room for a little doggy to run about and chase imaginary kitties that sometimes wander in..well, they are not ALL imaginary! My poor fern had a rough winter, can you tell?
Do you see the plum tree in full bloom?! I'm so happy about that!
The apple tree is the last to leaf out.
Looking in the opposite direction..the orange tree, lemon tree ..the peach tree..not sure what happened but it may have frozen. It's looking bad. It's behind the lemon tree.
From this angle it looks like a pile of junk! LOL
That's okay. It's home and it's comfortable.
You know, I never used to like succulents but for awhile now they have been gathering on this little table...yes, and I allow it. The spider plants are ones that were born here..pups clipped from the large hanging plants. They are doing well
So, that's most of the patio. I very carefully didn't let you see the potting bench..it's a MESS!
Please come back and have coffee with me. I'll even make some big chocolate chip cookies..
Love and hugs,
