Catching up

 I am finally catching up with the yard work.  I'm happy to report the pile of mulch is gone!!!!  And no I did not meet the goal of being done by July 4th.....missed it by a mere 20 days  So sue me!

 I love this dragon begonia & so do the hummingbirds.....still working on getting a pic of them
 One of my projects was to paint this table & the way it came out.  You gotta love spray paint
 I am sad to report that cousin Felicity has met with an accident & will be in rehab for a couple weeks,  A freaking squirrel pushed her off the tree!  At least I'm assuming that's what happened.....I would hate to think that she had been imbibing in a little too much elderberry wine.  Freda's not talking!

 Love astilbe....they really put on a show this year.

 This guy was a gift????  I'm not talking either!


  1. I never ever thought I would speak these words: i need a garden, I'll probably kill everything but I'll die trying

    Bee-yoo-tee-ful. absolutely.

    I think you might need to take Freda in for further questioning

My car is pigeon-toed!!!!!!

I get out of work on Thurs at 1:00 & usually play golf with my buddy Dominic.  Yesterday was kinda rainy, blustery so we decided not to play.  I headed up to the mall but got side-tracked on the way.  One of the things on my extremely long to-do list was "get two more tires for my car".  I pulled into Mavis Tire & checked to see how long it would take.


I was told around 20 mins before my car would get in so I decided to wait.


About an hour later my overly friendly mechanic wants to show me did I know it wasn't going to be pretty!  My rear "struts".....whatever they may be.... were leaking causing the rear end to lift up when I braked causing my car to "pigeon toe" which in turn was making my  new tires .....that were put on the front wheels in wear unevenly.  As if that wasn't enough for my brain to digest one of the front wheels had a bad wheel bearing.

Needless to say at that poin…


Happy birthday to my big brother Terry...........have a wonderful day!

Round Lake Village

Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming

They are still working on my house

I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house
"Mama I have flyaway ears again today!"
