Spring has Sprung at our house..

What a beautiful day we had on Saturday. We decided our yard was really in need of help and so no picnic or fishing for us that day! I was so excited to feel good enough to work and dig in the dirt! Sounds crazy but I know a few out there that can relate. I can solve all the world problems and even my own as I completely weed the yard. The rose garden got a good dose of coffee grounds, weeded and pampered more than any other part of the yard. Check back in a few months and our (Joey) roses will be in full bloom! I planted a few flowers and scrubbed all the concrete statues and stained the wooden things. The vegetable garden is also already to go when I finally decide what to plant. Sometimes I think I only want raspberries, strawberry and rhubarb...
What a day.... as we crawled into bed dead tired we realized how lucky we are to have good health, family we love, great friends and a beautiful area to live.
If you're having a bad in your yard..or better yet work in my yard!

Memories.....Treasures.... and the Legacy

The birdhouse legacy live on!! These aren't just any old ordinary birdhouses. Years ago my dad made these for each of us kid's and our families... Over the years I have managed to obtain all 6 of them. To me they are a great remembrance and tribute to my dad. He loves the outdoors, along with beautiful yards, flowers, especially roses and he loved to watch the birds come each Spring. When he moved to Provo a few years ago he knew he wouldn't have a place for them. So I was more than willing to beautify my yard a little more with his beautiful artwork!
This year Rick decided to be the one to refurbish and do all the painting! I was so glad because I don't have the patience like he does. A few more windows to paint and they'll be ready for the glue on flowers and then the birds!
